Egyptian squash legend Ramy Ashour announces retirement
Ashour, who was formerly crowned as Junior World Champion on two occasions, has suffered from multiple physical issues in the past couple of years that halted his progress in the world ranking.
The 31-year-old was plagued with several injuries, specifically related to his knee, that affected his performances and forced him to deliver underwhelming displays, and their recurrence caused him to abandon a lot of tournaments from the PSA series.
Ashour currently occupies the no. 211 spot in the world ranking due to his long lasting absence from activity, until he decided to bring an end to his prestigious career on Monday.
Throughout his career, the Egyptian squash superstar triumphed the world championship three times, won the Allam British Open once and stayed on the throne of the world ranking for 21 successive months.
The Professional Squash Association (PSA) previously announced that Ashour came in the second place of their poll for the greatest squash player of all time, behind Pakistan’s Jahangir Khan.
