NOVEMBER - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Farag wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Egyptian Ali Farag has been named Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month for November, after winning the first PSA World Series event of his career at the U.S. Open and reaching the final of the $100,000 St George’s Hill Classic.

The U.S. Open success – where the fourth-seeded Farag defeated second favourite Mohamed ElShorbagy in the final – was particularly special, as wife Nour El Tayeb also notched her first World Series triumph in Philadelphia.

“It’s a dream, especially that we have done it together on the same night,” said the world no.5. “We couldn’t have asked for a better week and I hope it’s the first of many to come together.

“I always believed in myself and this win is going to make me believe even more and hopefully I carry this momentum into future tournaments. I can enjoy it tonight and then tomorrow I have to forget about it and move on.”

The 25-year-old did carry that momentum forward to the M100 event at Weybridge in England, where he fulfilled his no.2 seeding, only for ElShorbagy to get his revenge over Farag in the final.
