Sobhy Stuns World No.1 El Sherbini to Reach First Hong Kong Open Final in Seven Years – 2 December 2023

U.S. No.1 Amanda Sobhy produced an excellent performance to oust World No.1 Nour El Sherbini and progress to the final of the TTI Milwaukee Hong Kong Squash Open 2023 for the first time in seven years.

Sobhy, who was runner up in 2016, was tactically immaculate against the reigning World Champion to seal her first appearance in a Platinum-level final since the CIB PSA Black Ball Squash Open in 2021.

On their 18th meeting on the PSA World Tour, Sobhy’s accuracy was too much for El Sherbini to handle, as the American capitalized on many uncharacteristic errors from the Egyptian’s racket to record a 3-0: 11-8, 11-4, 11-3 win in half an hour.
