Hania El Hammamy – Black Ball Open run

19-year-old Hania El Hammamy defied the odds at the CIB Black Ball Squash Open as she produced some incredible performances to lift her maiden Platinum title.

The Egyptian teenager overcame higher-seeded opposition in the form of France's Camille Serme, USA's Amanda Sobhy and England's Sarah-Jane Perry before she took out World Champion Nour El Sherbini in a thrilling five-game final to win her biggest title to date.

Gregory Gaultier – Tournament of Champions return

Former World No.1 Gregory Gaultier announced his return to the PSA World Tour in style following a 15-month absence due to injury.

Gaultier has carved out a reputation as one of the most popular and charismatic players of the modern era, but a career-threatening knee injury sustained in late 2018 required two surgeries to fix, leaving Gaultier fighting to save his career.

However, Gaultier enjoyed an impressive comeback as he defeated former World No.3 Omar Mosaad in New York and marked the emotional occasion with some impressive celebrations.

Camille Serme – Tournament of Champions run

Nothing was going to stop France's Camille Serme from lifting the prestigious J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions title in New York as she survived one of the toughest runs of her career to win her second title at the event.

The Frenchwoman overcame an all-Egyptian run-in, which saw her end a seven-match losing streak to World No.1 Raneem El Welily before going on to defeat World No.2 Nouran Gohar in the semi-finals and then reigning World Champion Nour El Sherbini in the final.

Tarek Momen – PSA World Championship win

After coming so close the season before in Chicago, it was Tarek Momen's time to shine in Qatar as he claimed one of the biggest achievements in the sport by winning the PSA World Championship title.

The Egyptian put in an impressive performance in the final to dispatch New Zealand's Paul Coll and get his hands on the biggest prize in men's squash.

The win also meant that Momen and wife, Raneem El Welily, are the first married couple in squash history to win World Championships – a feat which saw them honoured by the Guiness World Records.

Nour El Sherbini – PSA World Championship win

Nour El Sherbini looked as though she was going to face a tough challenge defending her PSA Women's World Championship crown, when the tournament took place in front of the stunning backdrop of the Great Pyramid of Giza, after struggling with injury and not playing a single event up until that point of the season.

However, the Egyptian ripped up the form book to storm to victory and lift her fourth World Championship trophy on her 24th birthday.

Or does another moment stick out for you from this season?
