DECEMBER - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Squash Player News
Gawad wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Karim Abdel Gawad is an overwhelming winner of Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month for December, after becoming world champion for the first time and clinching his first World Series title.

The 25-year-old Egyptian followed up his stunning PSA World Championship success as sixth seed in front of his home crowd in Cairo by claiming the Qatar Classic in Doha.

“Being world champion and Qatar champion sounds good, really good,” said Gawad, who climbed to a career-best second in the world rankings on the back of his double triumph. “I’m living the dream.

“But next season I’m aware that I’ll have to make sure I’m very consistent if I want to stay in competition with the top boys.

“When you are a world champion, people expect you to win and that you have a big chance to win. That is a new element I had to integrate into my preparation [for Qatar]. For the first time, I was under pressure.”
