February - Women's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

Sobhy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Sobhy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Amanda Sobhy has been named Female Player of the Month for February by the London-based Squash Player magazine after reaching her first PSA World Series final at the Tournament of Champions in January.

The 10th-seeded American knocked out top seed Raneem Welily, sixth seed Alison Waters and eighth seed Nouran Gohar before going down 3/1 to seventh seed Nour El Sherbini in the New York final.

The New York-born 22-year-old also broke into the world top 10 for the first time in January and put that achievement down to a combination of hard work and linking up with a sports dietician.   

“I have been doing the same thing for the past few months by just putting my head down and working hard with my coaches and fitness trainer to improve on my weaknesses and to keep improving on my strengths,” she said.  

“In addition, I started working with a sports dietician, Tara Mardigan, who has helped me out a lot, and it's showing in my movement and speed on court.” 

Sobhy is now targeting further success in the final two World Series events of the women’s season – the Windy City and British Opens.
