OCTOBER - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

El Welily wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award
Raneem El Welily has been named Squash Player’s Female
Player of the Month for October after becoming the first
Egyptian woman to win the $100,000 Al-Ahram Open.

T
he world no.5 ended a PSA Tour title drought lasting six
months by edging out her top-seeded compatriot, Nour El
Sherbini, 3/2 in a thrilling final lasting just over an hour in
front of the Giza pyramids.
 
The 27-year-old from Cairo looked to be cruising to victory
when she opened up a 2/0 lead, but El Sherbini battled
back to level, before El Welily claimed the decider in an 11-
5, 11-9, 9-11, 9-11, 11-7 success.
 
She said afterwards: “Nour is the best player out there at
the moment in women’s squash. She played a great match
and really pushed hard until the end.
 
“I think we both gave it everything we had – which is fitting
for this final in this amazing location.”
 
El Welily now moves on to the U.S. Open, where she will be bidding for her first World Series triumph since the Windy City Open in March.
