Cairo-born Nour El Tayeb is one of the most consistent female players on the PSA World Tour and a flamboyant crowd favourite, known for her acrobatic diving abilities.
She reached the final of the World Junior Championship in 2009 but narrowly lost to compatriot Nour El Sherbini.
Her first Tour title came a year later at the Creteil International Open where she became the third youngest Tour title winner after besting home favourite Camille Serme in the final.
She finished 2010 in the world's top 20 players while April 2011 brought her second Tour title as she powered past former World Champion Vanessa Atkinson en-route to the Irish Open crown.
The Egyptian captured the Atlantis Open in 2012 while 2014 saw her reach successive World Series finals at the Malaysian Open and Hong Kong Open tournaments but she fell to Raneem El Welily and Nicol David, respectively.
She made it to the final of the Texas Open in April 2015 but was defeated by Amanda Sobhy at the final hurdle.
A fine run at the US Open seven months later almost paid dividends after she shocked then World No.1 El Welily but she narrowly fell to a final defeat against Laura Massaro.
An injury sustained during her match with El Welily resulted in an enforced six-month spell on the sidelines for El Tayeb, who spent much of 2016 trying to force her way back into the world’s top 10.
El Tayeb made her return from injury in the Naza PSA Women’s World Championship in 2015, where she exited at round 2 against Amanda Sobhy in a gruelling five-game encounter.
The Egyptian went onto make a semi-final appearance in the Al Ahram Squash Open, where she was beaten by Nour El Sherbini over three games.
