October - Women's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Gohar wins Player of the Month award


Nouran Gohar has been named Player of the Month for October by the authoritative London-based Squash Player magazine after an astonishing September in which the 17-year-old Egyptian reached two PSA W50 finals.
She followed up her world junior title in July by qualifying for the China Open decider, beating world no.1 Nicol David along the way, and then matched that by making the climax of the Macau Open.

“For sure September 2015 has been one of the most successful months of my career, if not the best,” she said. “Being in the final of two 50k tournaments has been a massive thing for me and I was really, really happy.

“The highlight was beating the world champion, Nicol David. Nicol has always been my role model and someone I always look up to, so beating a true legend like her was one of the most remarkable moments of my life.”

Gohar attributed her September successes – she also defeated British Open champion Camille Serme in China and top 10 duo Nour El Tayeb and Annie Au in Macau – to a change in her mental approach.

“I became more confident and started to believe that I was capable of achieving lots of things,” she explained. “My way of training didn't change a lot, but I’m now totally dedicated to squash. Before, I used to go to high school, so I was a part-time player, but now Ihave more time to train and focus on squash.”
