Ramy Ashour with the 2014 World Championship title

Ramy Ashour Announces Retirement

Egypt’s three-time World Champion Ramy Ashour has announced his immediate retirement from professional squash.

Known on tour as ‘The Artist’, Cairo-born Ashour, 31, is regarded as one of the most talented squash players ever and spent 21 months at World No.1 between 2010-2013.

He won PSA World Championship titles in 2008, 2012 and 2014. The last of those saw Ashour return after a six-month injury absence to claim the sport’s biggest title in stunning style, beating long-term rival Mohamed ElShorbagy in the final – a match which has gone down in history as gone of the greatest squash matches of all time.
