February - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Farag wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Ali Farag has been voted Squash Player’s Player of the Month, after winning the $180,000 Tournament of Champions in January for the first time.

The Egyptian second favourite beat his top-seeded compatriot, Mohamed ElShorbagy, in a dramatic, 84-minute final in New York.

Farag looked down and out in Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall after going two games behind and 6-2 down in the third.

But the 26-year-old fought back valiantly to take the third and fourth games to level at 2-2, before claiming the fifth 11-8 and the 14th PSA title of his career.

"Mohamed is such a warrior; he never gives any points away,” Farag said afterwards.

“It's been one of the biggest spectacles for the sport and to be played in such a clean spirit is a great showcase for our sport."
