April - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

Sedki wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

American Reeham Sedky is Squash Player’s Women’s Player of the Month, after reaching the final of the $25,000 Texas Open in March as a qualifier.

The 20-year-old world no.223 knocked out top seed Hania El Hammamy, fourth seed Mayar Hany and seventh seed Danielle Tourneau before losing to former world no.6 Amanda Sobhy 3/1 in the final in Houston.

Sedky, who also finished runner-up to Sobhy in the US National Championship in March, said: “The Texas Open is definitely the biggest result of my career.

“Last year, although I had some wins against top 20 players at the World Team Championship, this was different, because I played four back-to-back matches against players in the top 40.

“Beating the world no.22, Hania El Hammamy, was the catalyst to a great tournament for me and gave me more confidence for my hopes for the PSA Tour in the next couple of years after college.”

The University of Pennsylvania student also excelled at the US Nationals, beating world no.13 and defending champion Olivia Blatchford 3/1 en route to the final, where she lost 3/0 to Sobhy.
