Hesham Withdraws from 2016 Men’s World Championship


Egyptian World No.22 Mazen Hesham has pulled out of the upcoming 2016 Wadi Degla PSA Men’s World Championship in Cairo after failing to recover from the hip injury he sustained during last month’s Al Ahram Squash Open NEWGIZA.

The 22-year-old, who has fast become one of the most popular and enigmatic characters on the PSA World Tour, was forced to retire mid-way through his first qualifying round clash with Spaniard Carlos Cornes Ribadas in the Al Ahram Open, meaning he also missed last week’s Delaware Investments U.S. Open.
