World No.5 Nour El Sherbini and World No.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy made history as both Egyptian stars taking the 2016 J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions crown in different styles.
25-year-old Elshorbagy continued his recent dominance over 10 years elder England’s Nick Matthew in the men’s final to defend his crown in a nail-biting 93-minute spectacle that saw Elshorbagy repeat his heroics against the Englishman, who he defeated in last year’s final, with an 8-11, 11-6, 11-8, 6-11, 11-6 triumph. “It’s a great start for me to 2016 and I’m glad. I really enjoyed the match today and I look forward to having more great battles with him in the future,” said Elshorbagy.
Meanwhile, the women’s event saw Egyptian 20-year-old 2 Nour El Sherbini scoop the most lucrative title of her career after overcoming 22-year-old home favourite Amanda Sobhy. El Sherbini was in the form of her life after defeating 2014 winner Nicol David in the previous round and played with a maturity beyond her years as she rose to claim an 11-4, 9-11, 12-10, 11-8 victory and capture her 1st ever PSA World Series crown. “It’s an unbelievable feeling, I can’t express it. Words can’t describe how I’m feeling now,” said El Sherbini.
