Egyptian international and former world’s number one squash champion Ramy Ashour announced on Monday his retirement from professional squash after about 15 years on squash courts. Ashour, 31, won two joiner world champion titles, three senior world championship titles, and stayed at World’s No.1 for 21 months between 2010 and 2013. Ashour was also voted in the summer of 2018 as the second greatest male player of all time behind Pakistan’s Jahangir Khan, with thousands of squash fans taking part in a poll conducted by the Professional Squash Association (PSA). Squash has given me so much, but also took a lot from me physically and mentally,” Ashour said. PSA Chief Executive Alex Gough was among those to pay tribute to Ashour.
