MAY - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

El Sherbini wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Nour El Sherbini has been named Squash Player’s Female Player of the Month for May after becoming the first Egyptian woman to retain a world squash title in April.

The 21-year-old world no.1, who was the first Egyptian woman to win a PSA World Championship when she won the delayed 2015 event last year, defeated compatriot Raneem El Welily 11-8, 11-9, 11-9 in the final at El Gouna.

El Sherbini's victory ended a six-month title drought and brought her a first major triumph since she lifted her first World Championship title in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a year ago.

"I'm over the moon,” she said. “Two or three months ago I didn’t imagine that I’d win because I haven't won a [major] title this season.

"It felt like I wasn't going to win this season, but once I knew that the tournament was going to be in Egypt, I was so excited and I wanted to come and play in El Gouna.

"I'm really happy to win in front of my home crowd. It's never easy to play Raneem. I've grown up learning a lot from her and she's told me a lot of things off court and on court. She's the best 'sister' I could ever have and I’m really thankful for everything she’s done for me."
