SEPTEMBER - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Sobhy wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Amanda Sobhy has been named Squash Player’s Female Player of the Month for September for beating world champion and world no.1 Nour El Sherbini in the Hong Kong Open.

The 3/0 victory took the 23-year-old American to her second World Series final and although she was unable to follow it up with the title as she went down 3/1 to Nouran Gohar, it was a remarkable scoreline.

"It took a little bit to get used to her pace at the start; she's not world no.1 for nothing," said Sobhy after her 12-10, 11-5, 11-6 triumph in 33 minutes.

"At the start I felt that I was just running and trying to retrieve, so I told myself to get into it, try and get the ball to the back, and I'm very pleased with how I was able to come back.

"I think the first game was extremely important, given the fact I was 10-5 down. If she had won that game, it would have given her a lot of momentum, so the fact that I was able to win that, I think that the momentum shifted and I was able to build on a lot of confidence.”

Sobhy’s next target is to win a World Series final, having also reached the decider of the Tournament of Champions in January.
