Squash on Social: Inside the PSA World Tour


The Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open takes centre stage this week with the world’s leading players going head-to-head in the third PSA World Series event of the season.

As ever, the players still have time to delve into social media so we decided to take a look at what the players have been getting up to on Twitter this past week.

Stalwart Jenny Duncalf may have been beaten by the up-and-coming Amanda Sobhy but she was gracious in her defeat to the charismatic American in the pair’s second round clash.

Mohamed Elshorbagy didn’t have to play his second round fixture against Saurav Ghosal due to the latter’s injury – and it’s just as well as he may have been late judging by his experiences with the local transport!

Simon Rösner meanwhile offered support on behalf of the squash world to a disappointed Ghosal – Get well soon Saurav!

Karim Abdel Gawad has had a sensational start to the 2015/16 season after reaching the world’s top 10 and he lifted his first PSA M35 title last week at the Reidbuilt Homes Edmonton Open – he was clearly delighted.

Laura Massaro: Squash superstar and purveyor of an almighty fist pump – a celebration that is becoming a familiar scene after the World No.2 has won both PSA World Series events so far this season. Will she make it a hat-trick in Hong Kong?

Marwan Elshorbagy highlights what is undoubtedly a downside of being an international athlete – we think he was too tired to finish off the tweet!
