Nicknamed ‘The Artist’, Ramy Ashour is one of the most technically gifted players ever to play the game of squash.
He won his first major professional title in 2007, defeating David Palmer in the Canadian Squash Classic. He followed it up by winning the Kuwait Open the same year, beating compatriot Amr Shabana in the final.
Wins at the 2009 PSA Masters and Saudi International in December meant that the Egyptian star reached World No.1 in January 2010 at just 22 years of age, becoming the youngest player to do so for 26 years.
In 2012 he made the final of every tournament he competed in and won the 2012 Qatar PSA World Championship, US Open, Hong Kong Open and Australian Open.
Despite being dogged by injury, Ashour started 2013 in fine fettle, coming back from 2-0 down to defeat Gregory Gaultier in the final of the Tournament of Champions – his third victory at the event – and continued to carry on his amazing 2012 momentum on the tour as he went 49-matches unbeaten.
It was eventual champion Nick Matthew who ended that run during the 2013 World Championship, and the Egyptian went on to be plagued by injury during the next year.
After almost six months away from the court, Ashour returned to the court for the 2014 Qatar PSA World Championship and completed a miraculous return to action, clinching his third World Championship title after beating compatriot Mohamed Elshorbagy in a superb final.
Ashour then struggled with a knee-miniscus injury for a further five months before he made yet another stunning return to the game with Elshorbagy again being defeated in the final of the El Gouna International in April 2015.
The Egyptian’s injury woes continued into the 2015/16 season as he limped out of his US Open second round fixture just weeks after beating Nick Matthew to the NetSuite Open title.
He made his comeback at the World Championship in November 2015 but yet another hamstring problem held him back and he bowed out in the quarter-final stage after defeat to Omar Mosaad.
