January - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

SQUASH PLAYER NEWS

Sedky wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Teenage amateur Reeham Sedky has been named Squash Player’s Female Player of the Month for January for her astonishing performances in the World Women’s Team Championship in December, her senior USA debut.

The 19-year-old University of Pennsylvania student took England’s world no.11, Sarah-Jane Perry, to five games in the pool stages before helping the USA to fifth place in Paris with a stunning 3/2 win over Malaysia’s world no.17, Delia Arnold.

“I think my win against Delia was my best career win over the 10 years I have been playing squash,” said Sedky after her first major competitive match on a glass court.

“Going into the match with a very relaxed mindset really helped and I knew that I wasn’t only doing this for myself, but for Team USA as well. Clinching that five-setter victory left me speechless and exuberant at the same time.”

Sedky, a semi-finalist in last year’s US Nationals, intends to start playing some PSA tournaments over the summer and “seeing where I go from there”.

“My aim is to continue enjoying what I am doing on court and the different countries that I travel to,” she added.
