Having missed 2021 completely, and all but the U19 events in 2022, there are less returning champions than usual, but three of this year’s players are looking to add to their BJO title tally.
The break means that most of them players have missed out an age group, but they have the chance to notch up additional titles.
G11 2018, G13 2019 & 2020
Aged 15, she is the reigning World Junior Champion – the second youngest after five-time BJO Champion Nour El Sherbini -and winning that title this summer in Nancy had a match ball against world #15 Sabrini Sobhy in the Egyptian Open, and has collected two PSA titles.
Amina is top seed for the G19 event.
In this year’s World Juniors she lost in the semi-finals – 12-10 in the fifth – to Amina Orfi, and the pair are seeded to meet again in this year’s final.
This year he’s a 3/4 seed in the B17 – the only event in which Egypt provides the top four seeds!
