Current World No.1 Nour El Sherbini has finally got her hands on the women’s CIB PSA Black Ball Squash Open trophy after two previous runner-up finishes following her 3-1 majors win over Amanda Sobhy of USA in Cairo, Egypt, earlier yesterday.

Hany Hamouda [Former Egyptian Squash Board Member and Squash Federation of Africa President] has been one of the main supporters for me and he attended all four World Championship wins.
