El Sherbini World Hat-Trick Makes Squash History In Poland

Egyptian teenager Nour El Sherbini has become the world's most successful junior squash player of all-time after winning the WSF Women's World Junior Championship title for a record third time.

Victory over compatriot Mariam Ibrahim Metwally in the final of the World Squash Federation event at the Hasta La Vista Club in the historic city of Wroclaw in Poland sees the 17-year-old from Alexandria extend the previous women's double record set by the reigning world number one Nicol David in 2001, and the twin-title men's record established by Ramy Ashour - also the current world number one - in 2006.

There was an upset in the men's final - also an all-Egyptian affair - when No2 seed Karim Ayman Elhammamy beat favourite Fares Mohamed Dessouki in four games to keep the trophy in Egyptian hands for the eighth year in a row.

El Sherbini is no stranger to record-breaking achievements in the sport: In August 2009 in India - in her maiden appearance in the World U19 championship - the unheralded 13-year-old swept through the field to become the youngest world champion ever.

Two years later she won the Alexandria International Open in her home city to become the first U16-year-old to win two WSA World Tour titles.

And, after winning her second World Junior crown a year ago in Qatar, El Sherbini became the first player to reach a fourth world junior final on Saturday after success in the semi-finals in Wroclaw.

The championship favourite reached the final without losing a game - and faced surprise opponent Metwally, a 5/8 seed to whom she had dropped a game in the 2012 quarter-finals.

Metwally, a year younger than Sherbini, had reached her maiden final after upsets over No2 seed Nouran Ahmed Gohar and last year's runner-up Yathreb Adel, a 3/4 seed.

But El Sherbini, ranked 11 in the world, could not be stopped: It took just 34 minutes for the 17-year-old to fulfil her dream, beating Metwally 11-7, 16-14, 11-8 to take the title.

The men's final brought together the event's top two seeds - with top-seeded Dessouki not only boasting a world ranking more than 200 places above his opponent, but a victory over Elhammamy in January's British Junior U19 Open en-route to winning the prestigious title.

But, in a fittingly dramatic climax to the world individual championships in Wroclaw, underdog Elhammamy clinched the title 11-8, 11-6, 6-11, 13-11 after 83 minutes.

"I've seen a lot of squash: PSA, senior team event, everything. But this - this was just something else," said the Poland Team coach Marcin Kozik afterwards. "These boys flew around the court. What they did there tonight was crazy and I absolutely loved it!"

World Championships To Climax In Egyptian Double In Poland

For the third year in a row, all-Egyptian finals will bring the WSF World Junior Squash Championships to a climax after more than 160 players have battled over the past five days in the men's and women's World Squash Federation events at the Hasta La Vista Club in the historical city of Wroclaw in Poland.

"I'm very excited to be in the final as it is my first World Juniors final," said the jubilant second seed Karim Ayman Elhammamy after beating England's 5/8 seed Richie Fallows 11-5, 9-11, 11-7, 11-5 in the hour-long first men's semi-final.

"He's a great player," added the 17-year-old from Cairo of his London-based opponent.

Elhammamy, the reigning US Junior U19 Open champion, now faces Alexandria-based Fares Mohamed Dessouki after the top seed defeated 5/8 seed Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi - the first Qatari ever to reach the event's last four - 11-4, 12-10, 11-7 in 36 minutes.

"It's a new and very special feeling for me as my previous best was playing in the quarterfinals," said 18-year-old Dessouki.

"I will play a player I know very well, which will be tough, but it should also make for a great match," admitted the 2013 British Junior U19 Open champion.

History was made in the women's event when Nour El Sherbini beat fellow Egyptian Habiba Mohamed Ahmed Alymohmed 11-8, 11-8, 11-9 in 31 minutes to become the first player ever to reach a world junior championship final for a fourth time.

"I'm really happy to play in my fourth World Juniors final," said the victorious 17-year-old from Alexandria.

It was an impressive performance, however, from 9/16 seed Mohamed - a 14-year-old from El Sherbini's home city who will no doubt be looking to emulate her compatriot's remarkable record over the next four years.

El Sherbini will now take on fellow countrywoman Mariam Ibrahim Metwally in a bid to make yet a further entry in the world squash record books - as the first ever winner of three world junior titles.

Metwally, a 5/8 seed, produced the day's only upset when she overcame 3/4 seed Yathreb Adel 11-6, 9-11, 11-6, 13-11 in 64 minutes.

Men's semi-finals:
[1] Fares Mohamed Dessouki (EGY) bt [5/8] Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi (QAT) 11-4, 12-10, 11-7 (36m)
[2] Karim Ayman Elhammamy (EGY) bt [5/8] Richie Fallows (ENG) 11-5, 9-11, 11-7, 11-5 (60m)

Women's semi-finals:
[1] Nour El Sherbini (EGY) bt [9/16] Habiba Mohamed Ahmed Alymohmed (EGY) 11-8, 11-8, 11-9 (31m)
[5/8] Mariam Ibrahim Metwally (EGY) bt [3/4] Yathreb Adel (EGY) 11-6, 9-11, 11-6, 13-11 (64m)

Fallows & Al Tamimi In Bid To Stop Egyptian Double In Poland

Only Englishman Richie Fallows and Qatar's Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi stand in the way of an Egyptian double in the WSF World Junior Squash Championships in Poland after today's quarter-final action in the World Squash Federation event at the Hasta La Vista Club in the historical city of Wroclaw.

Fallows, a 5/8 seed and runner-up in the recent European Junior Championship, claimed an unexpected place in the semi-finals after twice coming from behind to beat Egypt's Mohamed El Gawarhy 7-11, 11-4, 11-13, 11-8, 11-9 in 80 minutes - the longest match of the tournament so far.

"It was a really tight game which almost slipped away from me," said the 18-year-old Londoner afterwards. "I think God was on my side today, especially when I think about that backhand shot that went off my frame and helped me win the point at nine-all in the fifth!

"Who would I rather play in the semis? Nobody really. At this stage it's always anybody's game."

Fallows now faces Karim Ayman Elhammamy, the second-seeded Egyptian who ended Kuwait's historic run in the championship when he recovered from a game down to remove 5/8 seed Yousif Nizar Saleh 9-11, 11-5, 11-8, 11-7.

"Losing the first game was disappointing, but I was still getting into the game," said Elhammamy. "I'm that sort of player who gets better as the match progresses. I play Richie (Fallows) in the semis, who I've never met before. We'll see how it goes."

Al Tamimi is also seeded in the 5/8 group - and was also marking his country's debut appearance at the last eight stage of the championship. The Doha teenager ended English schoolboy Lyell Fuller's run by beating the unseeded 17-year-old 12-10, 11-8, 11-6.

The 18-year-old Qatari faces his sternest test when he takes on Egypt's Fares Mohamed Dessouki for a place in the final. Favourite Dessouki stopped 5/8 seed Diego Elias, Peru's first ever competitor in the championship, 11-9, 9-11, 11-5, 11-4 in 65 minutes.

But the biggest upset came in the women's event when Mariam Ibrahim Metwally ousted Egyptian compatriot Nouran Ahmed Gohar, the No2 seed, 7-11, 11-7, 11-5, 11-13, 11-8 in 74 minutes.

"I actually have a rather good record against Nouran Gohar," explained the victorious 5/8 seed later. "I've played her perhaps 20 times in Egypt, not losing many of these, and I beat her in a tournament two weeks ago, 3/1.

"Today I could repeat that, having match point at 2/1 up, but I let that chance slip and she won the game. Luckily I wasn't made to rue that later on," added the 16-year-old.

"Why wasn't I celebrating at the end? I was in a bit of pain because of cramp in my foot which I got at 8-5. I somehow managed to get through anyway!"

Metwally now takes on fellow countrywoman Yathreb Adel, a 3/4 seed who needed only 25 minutes to overcome Belgium's Nele Gilis 11-4, 11-5, 11-1.

The other women's semi will also be a surprise all-Egyptian affair between favourite Nour El Sherbini and 9/16 seed Habiba Mohamed Ahmed Alymohmed.

El Sherbini, now one match away from her fourth final appearance since 2009, beat compatriot Salma Hany Ibrahim 11-9, 11-3, 11-6, while 14-year-old Alymohmed upset USA's 3/4 seed Sabrina Sobhy 11-7, 11-7, 11-8.

"I never played Salma Ibrahim Ahmed in a competitive match before even though we often play exhibition matches," said El Sherbini, the world No11, afterwards. "I think I did good, I'm quite satisfied with my performance.

"Tomorrow I play the young Habiba Mohamed whom I've also never faced before. We're from the same city, but from different clubs."

A confident Habiba Mohamed denied being nervous about her semi against fellow Alexandrian El Sherbini - and not surprised by today's win: "Was I expecting the win? Perhaps a bit yesterday and much more today. It's a big deal as I'm younger than her and at only 14 years I'm in the semis!

"Am I nervous? Not at all. Why should I be? There's no pressure on me from now on."

Britons Lead Upsets In World Junior Championships In Poland

After two rounds of men's action in the WSF World Junior Squash Championships today in the Polish city of Wroclaw, unseeded Britons Angus Gillams, Lyell Fuller and Joel Makin joined Egyptian Omar Elatmas in securing unexpected places in the last 16 round at the new 20-court Hasta La Vista Club.

Englishman Gillams, a 17-year-old from Hertfordshire, survived his second five-game match of the day by upsetting Switzerland's 9/16 seed Robin Gadola 4-11, 13-11, 11-3, 11-13, 11-5.

Welshman Makin, aged 18, despatched 17-year-old Indian seed Kush Kumar 11-9, 13-11, 6-11, 11-7.

Fuller, a 17-year-old Englishman from Devon, followed a five-game win over senior US international Dylan Murray by taking out 18-year-old Indian Rishi Tandon 11-4, 11-5, 12-14, 11-7.

Elatmas took four games to see off Israeli 9/16 seed Daniel Poleshchuk 11-7, 10-12, 11-8, 11-3. The 17-year-old now faces second-seeded compatriot Karim Ayman Elhammamy, who defeated Argentina's Federico Cioffi 11-6, 11-7, 11-4.

Top seed Fares Mohamed Dessouki also had a straightforward win, beating Swiss opponent Remo Handl 11-2, 11-4, 11-2.

There were no notable surprises in today's second round of the women's event. Egyptian favourite Nour El Sherbini brushed aside Belgium's Tinne Gilis 11-7, 11-8, 11-3.

There was better news for the Gilis family, however, when Nele Gilis - a 5/8 seed - beat Canadian Alison Richmond 11-5, 11-1, 11-6 to claim her anticipated place in the third round.

France's 17-year-old Marie Stephan gave herself a confidence-boosting place in the next round when she defeated Sue Ann Yong 11-4, 11-8, 14-12 - avenging her defeat to the 18-year-old Malaysian in last week's Dutch Junior Open final in Amsterdam!

World Junior Championships Highlight
Global Reach Of Squash

The growing reach of Squash around the world has never been more emphatically demonstrated than by the seeding for next month's WSF World Junior Squash Championships in Poland.

The top eight seeds for the men's event hail from seven different nations and four separate continents - with players from Jordan and Qatar seeded in the elite group for the first time in the U19 event's 33-year history, and 16-year-old 5/8 seed Diego Elias becoming the event's first ever representative from Peru.

More than 150 players from a record 37 nations will compete in the 2013 Men's & Women's World Junior Individual Championships and the Women's World Junior Team Championship at the new 15-court Hasta La Vista Club in Wroclaw from 16-27 July - the event's first staging in Poland.

The three titles are expected to remain in Egyptian hands, however. Fares Mohamed Dessouki is the men's favourite, whilst a historic first is predicted of the top women's seed Nour El Sherbini.

The 17-year-old from Alexandria - who became the sport's youngest ever world champion in 2009 by winning the title aged just 13 - is now set to outdo greats like world number ones Nicol David and Ramy Ashour by claiming the title for an unprecedented third time!

Egypt is also seeded to win the biennial world junior team title for the fourth time in a row - in a further first for successive titles.

"This breadth of challengers for our world titles really is very global," said World Squash Federation President N Ramachandran. "It clearly demonstrates how many countries have worked hard on their junior programmes. I am delighted to see this. The result is that these World Juniors promise to be more exciting than ever."
