France’s Victor Crouin and Sabrina Sobhy of the United States have been named as the PSA Challenger Tour’s Players of the Month for November.

During the month of November, Crouin lifted the ninth PSA Tour title of his career, as he won the Dominicana Squash Open, beating Mario Yanez in straight games in the final.

It is the Frenchman’s fifth title of the calendar year, having also won the Mulgrave Country Club Victorian Open, Australian Open, Tasmanian Open and the CenterState Bank Marietta Open already in 2019.

Crouin also performed well at the CIB Egyptian Open, where he reached the last 16, his best result at a Platinum event. His performances have seen his World Ranking improve, with the Frenchman now inside the top 50 in the world for the first time in his career, at a best of World No.46.

She was able to go through the entire tournament without dropping a game, whilst also knocking out the No.2 and No.4 seeds on her way to a third PSA Tour title.

Other notable performances on the PSA Challenger Tour in November include Nick Wall and Lily Taylor, with the English pair both winning their maiden PSA titles, at the Vegas Open and Capra Baerum Open, respectively.

Elsewhere, Olivia Blatchford Clyne won the Detroit Pro Open, beating Nele Gilis in the final to win the biggest title of her career, and former World No.1 James Willstrop triumphed on home soil at the London Open.
