Egyptian maverick Ramy Ashour is widely considered to be one of the most talented players ever to pick up a squash racket, with 35 PSA World Tour titles to his name, including three World Championships, illuminating the career of ‘The Artist’.
However, in amongst all the mercurial brilliance and scintillating shot-making skills that have elevated the former World No.1 into squash folklore, has been an injury-ravaged three years, with a multitude of hamstring injuries in particular limiting Ashour’s participation on the PSA World Tour – resulting in him falling out of the world’s top ten for the first time since 2006.
Ashour sat down with SquashXtra, the official publication of the PSA World Tour, and spoke about the root cause of his many injuries, the difficulty of being sidelined and his love for the sport in a candid interview, which will be released in the upcoming issue.
