The Artist aims for Hull comeback
By Squash Mad Reporter
Three-time world champion Ramy Ashour is hopeful his injury nightmare will soon be behind him as he aims to return to competitive action at the prestigious 2016 Allam British Open. The PSA World Series tournament will be staged from the 21st to 27th March at the Airco Arena in Hull.
The current world No.5 from Egypt has grappled with injury over the past two years and has made a handful of appearances since his 2014 World Championship victory, where he marked his return from a six-month absence to lift one of the sport’s biggest prizes.
After winning the NetSuite Open in San Francisco September, injury curtailed his participation in his next two events and he has been out of action in the three months since playing in the World Championship in Seattle.
However, ‘The Artist’ is hopeful that his latest attempts at rehabilitation will prove fruitful as he looks to win his first British Open crown since 2013.
“I have been working hard over the past few months to recover from my injuries and I hope to be able to compete at the Allam British Open later this month.” said Ashour.
“Winning the tournament in 2013 was a special moment for me and fingers crossed I can compete in that great event again in a few weeks.”
Qualification rounds will be staged at the University of Hull on March 19-20 with main draw action played at the Airco Arena from March 21-27.
