Player Info

One of the most talented players on the PSA World Tour, Mohamed Elshorbagy has flown up the world rankings since joining the PSA in 2006 as a 15-year old schoolboy. The Alexandria-born star rose to prominence in 2007 after he became the first player in history to secure a maiden PSA World Tour title at a five star event. He then made history again soon after, becoming only the second man after Ramy Ashour to win the World Junior Squash Championships twice when he won the tournament in 2008 and 2009. The Egyptian came close to winning World Championship in 2012 after besting James Willstrop in a five-game semi-final thriller but lost out to compatriot Ashour in the final. In 2013 he claimed his first World Series win in the Qatar Classic and carried supreme form throughout the 2014 campaign, winning five events including World Series tournaments at the Hong Kong and US Open’s. The latter in particular was significant because it elevated Elshorbagy to World No.1 for the first time in his career, courtesy of his victory over Gregory Gaultier in the semi-final, becoming the fourth youngest player to reach the milestone. He lost a second World Championship final, against compatriot Ashour, during the 2014 tournament in Qatar.
