Egypt’s Mohamed el-Sherbini won the 2017 Cleveland Skating Club Squash Open and secured his fifth PSA title after a thrilling match between el-Sherbini and Canada’s Shawn Delierre on October 28

Delierre won the first game by 11-9. The Pharaoh did not give up and won the following two consecutive games by 11-6 and 11-1. On the other hand, Delierre revenged winning the fourth game by 11-3. El-Sherbini managed to turn the match’s result to his favor, by the result of 3-2, after winning the final decisive game by 11-3.

Before reaching the final, el-Sherbini did not lose a single game. In the first round, he won against Argentinean Leandro Romiglio by 3-0 (11-6/11-3/11-3).
