Karim Abdel Gawad is another burgeoning Egyptian making his way to the top of the game.
He won the first PSA World Tour event that he participated in, the 2008 Goshen Cup, at the tender age of seventeen and has gone on to rise up the rankings since his maiden title.
2013 was somewhat of a breakthrough year for Gawad. The hugely talented Egyptian produced a terrific performance at the Qatar Classic, narrowly losing to Karim Darwish in the quarter-finals and was duly awarded the 2013 PSA Player of the Year award, in addition to making into the top twenty for the first time in his career.
He followed this up by stunning number one seed Alister Walker in the final of the 2014 Pittsburgh Open, resulting in a 3-1 win for the Egyptian to capture his first PSA World Tour title since 2011.
An appearance at the World Championship beckoned where Gawad lost out despite a spirited display against Max Lee.
Gawad did finish 2014 on a high though, beating Chris Simpson in the final of the Dubai Cup.
The Egyptian had a superb first half of 2015 as he romped to the Pittsburgh Open and Andorra Open crowns his 9th and 10th PSA World Tour titles respectively, before winning the Sharm El Sheikh International Championship on home-soil.
The Egyptian enjoyed a successful start to the 2015/16 campaign, rising into the world’s top 10 for the first time in his career in November 2015.
He followed that up by winning his first PSA M35 crown at the Edmonton Open later that month.
