World number one  and fellow Egyptian World number four, qualified to the second round of the 2016 El Gouna International squash tournament.

Mosaad managed to beat Australian squash star Cameron Pilley 1-3 (9/11, 11/6, 11/8, 11/2). He will be facing French Mathieu Castagnet  who managed to qualify after beating Mohamed Zahed 1-3 (/11, 11/5, 11/8, 11/7).

Elshorbagy qualified for the same round after defeating fellow Egyptian Mazen Hisham in a game he won 3-0 (2/10, 11/9, 13/11). This means he will be facing English Chris Simpson in the next round.

“This game was really hard but I was able to deal with successfully. I am also really happy that Mazen is back, he’s a great player with a promising future but his injury had a negative impact on his performance in the past period,” Elshorbagy added.

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
