January - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 


ElShorbagy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Newly-crowned world champion Mohamed ElShorbagy is Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month for January, after winning the global title for the first time, at Manchester in December.

The world no.2 from Egypt, runner-up at the event in 2012 and 2014 to Ramy Ashour, defeated younger brother Marwan 11-5, 9-11, 11-7, 9-11, 11-6 in the first World Championship final between two brothers in its 41-year history.

"It feels great – it’s a dream come true," said Mohamed after winning the biggest title of his career and the 30th overall.

"Losing the fourth 11-9 was a huge blow. Then I was down in the fifth and I had to fight and fight; he gave it everything.

“I remember the 2012 match with Ramy. I know how he felt now. There was so much pressure on me, like Ramy in 2012, and in these matches you just want to win the last point.

"At the end, we congratulated each other. It was my time today. With this title, you have to be patient and it will come for him.

“I've won everything in the sport now, but I still have much more to achieve and more titles to win."
