Ashour Withdraws From World Series Finals
A recurring hamstring injury has caused
Egypt's Ramy Ashour to withdraw from next week's
ATCO PSA World Series Finals, the flagship PSA World
Tour squash event in London which features the
eight players who earned the most points from the nine
PSA World Series championships in 2011.
The $110,000 event will take place for the
third time at The Queen's Club, from 4-8 January
Ashour, the 2007 champion, finished in third
place in the 2011 Dunlop PSA World Series Standings
after winning three World Series titles in the year.
The 24-year-old from Cairo has been plagued
with hamstring and adductor injuries - and will now undergo
specialist treatment in a clinic in Cologne in Germany in
Ashour's place in the 2012 ATCO PSA World
Series Finals line-up will be taken by fellow countryman
Mohamed El Shorbagy, the 20-year-old world No8 from
Alexandria who will be making his debut in the championship.
"I'm very happy to get in the World Series
Finals but hope for a speedy recovery for my team mate Ramy,"
said the young Egyptian on hearing the news.
