March - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

ElShorbagy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Egyptian Mohamed ElShorbagy has been named Squash Player’s Men’s Player of the Month for the second time in three months.

After collecting the January award for his first PSA World Championship success, where he beat his younger brother Marwan in the final, his March triumph follows a similar pattern.

The 27-year-old again came out on top – 11-8, 11-8, 11-6 this time – in the battle of the siblings when they met in the final of the Windy City Open in Chicago and deservedly returns to world no.1.

The senior ElShorbagy was in formidable form all week, not dropping a single game throughout the entire tournament, and continued his winning momentum to claim his sixth title of the season.

“It’s been an incredible season,” said Mohamed. “After last season I worked really hard, set new goals that I wanted to achieve and it just shows that nothing can stop anyone achieving their dream if they work hard for it.

“I’m really glad to get through this match with my brother. He has played incredibly this season and he will still get better. This the second time we've played in a big final and his first World Series title will come at the right time - I just wanted to keep it a little bit later than today."
