November - Men's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Mosaad wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award
 
Egypt’s Omar Mosaad has been named Male Player of the Month for November by the London-based Squash Player magazine for reaching his first PSA World Series final at the U.S. Open in October, just two months after the death of his mother and sister in a car accident.

The 27-year-old from Cairo put the double tragedy behind him to record his first ever win over world no.2 Nick Matthew in 12 attempts in the semi-finals of the $150,000 event.

Although the world no.7 lost in straight games to third seed Greg Gaultier in the final in Philadelphia, he was delighted with his PSA Tour breakthrough.

“It was awesome,” Mosaad commented. “I was so excited to play in a World Series final for the first time and in a tournament as important as the U.S. Open.

“Before the U.S. Open I played a tournament in Macau as the no.1 seed, but I lost at an early stage. I wasn't much in the mood for playing at that time due to the painful events that happened to me regarding my family this year.

“Then after that I focused again and trained so hard with the team physically andabove all mentally, because, as you know, playing the U.S. Open is a big thing for a squash player and thank God I did a good job there. I am so happy with the result.”
