Marwan ElShorbagy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Egyptian Marwan ElShorbagy has been named Squash Player’s Men’s Player of the Month, after winning the first PSA World Series title of his career at the El Gouna International Open in April.

The fourth seed overwhelmed third-seeded compatriot Ali Farag 3/0 in just 39 minutes to make it third time lucky after losing his two previous World Series finals at the Windy City Open.

The 24-year-old also upset his brother and top seed, Mohamed, 3/2 in the semi-finals, the second successive year he has knocked the world champion out of the event.
“To win my first ever World Series title here in Egypt means a lot to me,” said Marwan, who will overtake France’s Gregory Gaultier to move to a career-high world no.3 ranking on
May 1.

“Especially to win it here at home means the world. I’m so happy, I’m over the moon.
“I’ve lost a few major finals before, but coming into this one, I just had to learn from the losses I’d had and I had to be more relaxed and more focused. Me and my coach put a good game plan together before the match.”
