Three time World Champion Ramy Ashour is hoping his injury nightmare will soon be behind him as he aims to return to competitive action at the prestigious 2016 Allam British Open, PSA World Series tournament which begins on Monday March 21 at the Airco Arena in Hull.
The current World No.5 from Egypt has grappled with injury over the past two years and has made just a handful of appearances since his 2014 World Championship victory, where he marked his return from a six-month absence to lift the sport’s biggest prize.
After winning the NetSuite Open in his first tournament of the 2015/16 season, injury curtailed his participation in his next two events at the Delaware Investments US Open and 2015 World Championship and he has been out of action in the three months since. However, ‘The Artist’ is hopeful that his latest attempts at rehabilitation will prove fruitful as he looks to win a first British Open crown since 2013.
“I have been working hard over the past few months to recover from my injuries and I hope to be able to compete at the Allam British Open later this month,” said Ashour.
“Winning the tournament in 2013 was a special moment for me and fingers crossed I can compete in that great event again in a few weeks.”
The 2016 Allam British Open, PSA World Series tournament, takes place in Hull, England from Saturday 19th to Sunday 27th March. Qualification rounds will take place at the University of Hull on the 19th & 20th March while the main draw action will be played at the Airco Arena from the 21st March.
