Golden Boy Youssef Ibrahim Player of the Month

World No.35 Youssef Ibrahim has been named the PSA Player of the Month for November.

Golden Boy Youssef – then No.41 in the world – stunned the squash world when he overcame former World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy in the third round of the Qatar Classic PSA Platinum event and put a halt to any plans the 29-year-old had of regaining his No.1 spot in 2020.

The two Egyptians played out a five-game thriller in Doha, but it was Ibrahim who came out on top before narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-finals of the event with another five-game epic, this time against Fares Dessouky.

It was Ibrahim’s best run at a Platinum event and has cemented him as one of the players to watch on the men’s tour.
