ElShorbagy wins 2017 NetSuite Open title
Egypt’s Mohamed ElShorbagy was crowned champion of the 2017 NetSuite open for men’s singles in San Francisco.
ElShorbagy, who is currently World No.3, has beaten his compatriot and the World No.2 Karim Abdel Gawad in the final with 11-9, 11-6, 11-3 victory to claim the $100k prize and his 26th Tour title.
“I’m really happy, it’s only my first tournament of the season and I think it’s the first time in my life that I have won the first tournament,” said ElShorbagy.
ElShorbagy then talked about losing his World No.1 spot and his way back to his form saying: “When I was World No.1 for 28 months, all of the players studied me every single day but, coming into this season, I’m studying everyone. I’m coming in really hungry and I really want to do well this season.’’
“I’ve put in a lot of work this summer and there is nothing in my mind apart from getting back to World No.1 this season. I’m going to do everything I can to get back to where I feel I should be.” ElShorbagy concluded.
