Elshorbagy wins Player of the Month award again

Egypt’s Mohamed Elshorbagy has been named Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month for the second successive month after continuing his stranglehold on the world squash scene in April.

The English-based world no.1 secured his sixth consecutive PSA World Series title when he fought back from 2/0 down to beat France’s Greg Gaultier in the final of the El Gouna International Open. It was third time lucky for the 25-year-old, as he lost both the 2014 and 2015 finals in the Egyptian resort.

"It feels great to win this title after losing the last two years - I'm just so happy to win and get the title in front of my home crowd. It's an amazing feeling," said Elshorbagy.

"Today was a very tough battle at the end of a very tough season. I think I have played more matches than any other player and it has been difficult to push myself mentally at each tournament - to compete, rest and refocus each time takes so much out of you.

"I started the season losing the first round in Shanghai and then the semi-final of the U.S. Open. To turn the season around and win six World Series tournaments in a row is just a dream for me - I cannot believe that I have just done that.”
