Nour El Sherbini is one of the most exciting up-and-coming female players on the PSA World Tour and has produced a number of superb performances that have belied her tender years.
She made history in 2009 where she became the youngest ever World Junior Champion when she claimed the title at just 13-years-old and the Egyptian then became the youngest ever Tour finalist in June 2009 as she finished runner-up at the Miro Classic.
She broke into the world’s top fifty at just 14 years of age and claimed her first Tour title at the Heliopolis Open in 2010.
A year later she captured the Alexandria Open title and, in 2012, El Sherbini shocked the world of squash when she made it to the final of the British Open before losing to Nicol David in the final.
2013 started promisingly with triumph at the Greenwich Open and she also lifted her third World Junior Championship, becoming the first player ever to do so.
Injuries meant a number of months out of the game for the Egyptian but she became the youngest player ever to reach a World Championship final in March 2014 where, after stunning David in the final, she narrowly lost a thrilling final to Laura Massaro.
A Texas Open title followed a month later and she made it to another World Series final in October at the US Open, only to lose to David in the final.
2015 saw the Egyptian reign victorious at the prestigious Carol Weymuller Open, sweeping aside then World No.1 Raneem El Welily in the semi-final of the event before conquering Joelle King in the final.
She reached the final of the Qatar Classic a month later, defeating David to reach the final where she narrowly lost to Massaro in five.
The year 2016 was arguably El Sherbini’s major breakthrough year, with a maiden World Series title coming in January’s Tournament of Champions before she became the first female Egyptian to lift the iconic British Open crown just two months later.
Even greater things were to come though from Alexandria-born El Sherbini as, in April, she recovered from 2-0 down in the final of the World Championship against Massaro to avenge her defeat to the Englishwoman two years previously and become the youngest World Champion of all time, becoming the first Egyptian to win the pinnacle tournament on the Women’s Tour in the process.
Her exploits there elevated her to the World No.1 spot in the May 2016 rankings for the first time in her career as she became the second youngest female ever to reach top spot.
An incredible 2015/16 campaign was rounded off with a semi-final finish at the PSA Dubai World Series Finals, with Massaro exacting her revenge to win in straight games.
Sherbini began the 2016/17 season with runner-up finishes at the Al Ahram Open in front of the iconic Great Pyramid of Giza and also the U.S. Open, before claiming her first title of the campaign at the Cleveland Classic, beating Alison Waters in the final.
El Sherbini fell short of clinching another title, this time at the British Open as she lost out to England’s Laura Massaro in the semi-finals, who came from two games down to win.
The Egyptian went on to lift her second PSA Women’s World Championship title a few weeks later, at the age of just 21 after she defeated Raneen El Welily in the final at El Gouna- 12 months after becoming the first female Egyptian ever to lift the biggest title on the Women’s Tour and saw her retain her World No.1 ranking in the PSA Women’s World Rankings in May 2017.
