Biography: Current Qatar Classic champion, Mohamed Elshorbagy has flown up the world rankings since joining the PSA in 2006 as a 15-year old schoolboy.
He became only the second man after Ramy Ashour to win the World Junior Squash Championships twice, in 2008 and 2009.
The talented Egyptian also became the first player to win his first PSA World Tour title at a five star event, winning the Indian Challenger in 2010 with a defeat of Tarek Momen in the final.
He came close to tasting success at the 2012 World Championship after beating James Willstrop in an intense semi-final, but he lost to Ashour at the last hurdle.
Most recently, El Shorbagy reached a career high world ranking of World No.3 in February 2014.
