Squash - 03. April 2019.


l Sherbini claimed the women’s World Championship title, overcoming compatriot Nour El Tayeb in the final by an 11-6, 11-5, 10-1, 15-13 scoreline in just under an hour.

The win meant that 23-year-old El Sherbini made it a hat-trick of World Championship crowns and joined a list of iconic female squash players that includes Malaysia’s Nicol David, New Zealand’s Susan Devoy and Australian duo Sarah Fitz-Gerald and Michelle Martin who have lifted three or more World Championship titles.

The Egyptian was appearing in her fourth successive World Championship final – and fifth overall – as she dominated in the opening stages against El Tayeb, until the World No.3 battled back in the third.

However, El Sherbini edged a tense tie-break in the fourth to finally end El Tayeb’s resistance and lift the prestigious title.

She then went onto reach the final of the Black Ball Squash Open held in Cairo, Egypt, where she went down in a five-game thriller to compatriot and World No.1 Raneem El Welily.
