April - Men's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Elshorbagy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

World no.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy has been named Male Player of the Month for April by the London-based Squash Player magazine after taking his domination of the sport to a new level in March.

The English-based Egyptian not only won his first Windy City Open title when England’s Nick Matthew was forced to retire at 2/0 and 1-0 down in the Chicago final, but he also retained the British Open trophy by beating compatriot Ramy Ashour 3/0 in the Hull final.

The 25-year-old has now won five World Series events in a row and has lost only one PSA Tour match in 2016 – back in January to fellow Egyptian Ali Farag at the Motor City Open.

“It’s been a crazy season for me,” Elshorbagy commented. “Last season, when I won four World Series titles, I was telling my mother and brother that I didn’t know how I was going to keep up with that, but I’ve won five already, so this is a dream for me. I’m just really proud of what I’ve been achieving this season.”

Elshorbagy – who has also won the Qatar Classic, Hong Kong Open and Tournament of Champions – will now bid for a sixth consecutive World Series title at the El Gouna International Open in his home country in April.
