The young Egyptian champion talked about Massaro, in addition to her feelings during the game in post-match comments: “I think I’m dreaming right now, I didn’t imagine I could do it,” she said. “Laura’s one of the toughest players, she’s very tough on court. I thought it was the end (at 2-nil down) but my coach kept telling me there’s nothing to lose.” she continued. “I was trying to forget the two games I lost.” El-Sherbini concluded.
Following the win El-Sherbini will now be crowned the new number one Women’s squash player in the world, with the win allowing her to overtake Massaro in the process.
