Nour el Sherbini is one of the most exciting female players on the PSA World Tour. Precocious and talented, she is breaking all the records on her path!

A precocious talent

2009. Nour el Sherbini is 13 years old.
But she’s definitely not a child like any other, and this is time for us to show her talent.
Facing players much older than her, she actually becomes the youngest ever World Junior Champion and then the youngest ever Tour finalist in June of that year as she finished runner-up at the Miro Classic.

One year after, she breaks into the world’s top fifty. That’s when she decided to join the Tecnifibre Team, and keeps on writing her legend, and Squash History.

A lightning transition

2012. Nour El Sherbini is now 16. And she shocks the world of squash by making it to the final of the British Open, one of the most competitive tournament.
She earns 2 more Junior World Champion titles, before being stopped by some injuries.

Highly motivated, she comes back even stronger to become the youngest player ever to reach a World Championship final in March 2014.

Consecration

2016. Nour is 20 years old and has reached full maturity.

This is the beginning of her reign.
She starts the year by winning the prestigious Tournament of Champions in January, before the British Open 2 months later, becoming the first Egyptian female player to win it.

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.

Full domination

2017. After an incredible 2016 year, achieving all the possible squash goals she had, Sherbini begins the 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.
The Egyptian goes on to lift her second PSA Women’s World Championship title a few weeks later, at the age of just 21 and saw her retain her World No.1 ranking in the PSA Women’s World Rankings.
A ranking she has never left since !
