Amanda Sobhy: “Can life get any better!?”

Amanda Sobhy (pic) against Nour El Tayeb, that’s No.3 against No.4, a final with two 17-years-old girls against the seeding. The Egyptian Nour El Tayeb wanted to do once better than last year, when she became runner-up, but the American Amanda Sobhy had other plans on the day of her 17th birthday. She attempted to make herself the best present ever and become the first American ever, who won a world championship squash title. Sobhy recovered from a game down to win the world championship trophy in four games (3-11, 11-7, 11-6, 11-7). “I just won the world junior championships on my birthday, can life get any better!?”; said the new champion.
