El Shorbagy, who recently returned to World No.1 in the PSA March rankings for the first time in 12 months, defeated Tarek Momen 3-2 (11-8, 7-11, 12-10, 9-11, 11-3) in a thrilling game that lasted 86 minutes to win the 15th edition of the championship which was held in London.

“I’m really happy to win this for the first time, I’ve never won this title before and it’s a title that has had a lot of great names win it in the past. I’m really glad to put my name on that trophy,” El Shorbagy said. “This is the best ever match we’ve played against each other and what a venue to play that kind of battle in.”

The Egyptian, who won nearly $17,000 in prize money, was also recently crowned the 2018 Windy City Open champion after defeating his brother Marwan in the final game.
