MAY - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

El Sherbini wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award again

El Sherbini wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award again

Nour El Sherbini has been named Squash Player’s Female Player of the Month for the second consecutive month after her record-breaking April.

The 20-year-old became the youngest women’s world champion ever and the first Egyptian to win the title when she fought back from 2/0 down in a thrilling PSA Women’s World Championship final to beat Laura Massaro.

Furthermore, with her 6-11, 4-11, 11-3, 11-5, 11-8 victory in Malaysia, El Sherbini displaced the English woman – who beat her in the 2013 World Championship final – as world no.1 for the first time.

"I'm dreaming right now, I didn't imagine I could win this match," said El Sherbini.

"I want to say thanks to the Egypt team and everyone here for all the support that pushed me to the end. Laura is a very tough player and even until the end I didn't think I could do it.

"At 2/0 down I thought it was over. But [Amr] Shabana just kept telling me to focus and play squash, and forget about the score and start again."
