WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

El Welily wins Squash Playerís Player of the Month award

World no.2 Raneem El Welily won Squash Playerís Womenís Player of the Month award after claiming her second China Open title and helping Egypt retain the WSF World Womenís Team Championship in September.

The 29-year-old was made to battle for her Shanghai success, needing five games to defeat joint ninth seed Nicol David in the quarter-finals and four to beat third seed Nour El Tayeb in the semi-finals and fifth seed Camille Serme in the final.

"Iím just happy to start the season with a win,Ē said the second seed. ďThe final is never easy. I donít think I played my best squash, but mentally I was maybe better than in other matches.

ďIíve won this tournament here before and done so badly afterwards in a previous season, so Iím just happy with the win for now. Iím not thinking about anything else.

ďThe plan this season is to take it one match at a time, one point at a time and one rally at a time. Hopefully I can play this well again this season. Iíve got to play harder to improve and work on new stuff.Ē

El Welily carried out her plan the very next week, winning all five of her matches at the World Championship in Dalian, including a 3/1 victory over Englandís Laura Massaro in the final.
