Mohamed Abouelghar joined the PSA World Tour in 2009 and lifted his first title at the Royal Jordanian Squash Open in 2010, before going on to become one of the Egyptian contingent in and around the top 10 of the World Rankings.
A sole title followed in 2011 before he picked up the Gauteng Open and Western Province Open crowns in 2013. His fifth PSA World Tour title came at the Sekisui Open in May 2014 – his first PSA M10 triumph - and he claimed his maiden PSA M25 with victory over Omar Abdel Meguid.
Since that win, the Egyptian has gone onto make the semi-finals of the VIII Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta, where he lost out to Omar Masaad. Abouelghar went on to win the CAS International Squash Championship in 2015, where he beat Omar Meguid, who went the distance in a gruelling five-game final.
Another final appearance beckoned for Abouelghar, this time at the Reidbuilt Homes Edmonton Open in November 2015, where he missed out on the title to Karim Abdel Gawad. Abouelghar continued his strong form as he featured in another final, this time at the 2016 Houston Open, where former World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy reined victorious.
The Egyptian went onto enjoy success in the later stages of the season as he lifted the Sporta Guatemala X Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta 2017 title – his first PSA World Tour title in almost two years.
He then went on to also win the Macau Open, before going on to reach the final of the Pakistan Open, where he lost to Marwan ElShorbagy. Abouelghar made the quarter finals of the Motor City Open, Grasshopper Cup and the Torneo International Sporta, before he took victory at the China Open, which catapulted him into the top ten in the world for the first time. The Egyptian continued to make appearances in the quarter finals, reaching the last eight at the US Open, Hong Kong Open and the Black Ball Open to end 2018.
Abouelghar then won the Motor City Open in 2019, before reaching the semi finals of both the Canada Cup and the Grasshopper Cup, as he moved in the World No.7 spot, his highest ever place in the rankings. He finished his campaign with a runner-up finish at the World Tour Finals, where he lost out in a thrilling final to Karim Abdel Gawad.
After making the last 16 of the PSA Men’s World Championship in Qatar, Abouelghar went on to reach the semi-finals of the Channel VAS Championships at St George’s Hill. He was then part of the Egypt quartet that lifted the WSF Men’s World Team Squash Championships crown in Washington, D.C.
‘The Bullet’ struggled through 2020, but ended the year strongly, with a quarter-final appearance at the CIB Black Ball Squash Open on home soil in Cairo.
