The last time a US player was featured in the semi-finals of squash’s most prestigious tournament was back in 2007 when Natalie Grainger reached the last four, but Sobhy ensured that 14-year wait came to an end with a marvelous 11-3, 11-8, 11-9 victory against an opponent ranked two spots above her on the PSA Women’s World Rankings.
“The crowd kept pushing me,” said Sobhy.
Can Amanda Sobhy further make history by beating Nour El Ssherbini to make it to the finals?
