The PSA World Championships for men and women is currently being held at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, where the participants in the tournament compete for world titles and total cash prizes that are the largest in the history of squash tournaments.
Egyptian male and female players dominated the titles of the PSA World Championships in its previous five editions.
In December 2021, Sherbiny won the the CIB Black Ball Squash Open for the second time in her history, after defeating her compatriot Hania al-Hamami, of Wadi Degla, 3-1.
Sherbiny has qualified for the final match after defeating UK’s Georgina Kennedy 3-0 in the semi-finals.
Earlier in August, Sherbiny won the 2021 Allam British Open squash championship after beating Gohar in the final.
Sherbiny continued her dominance in recent years by taking a second British Open title in three seasons, before Gohar claimed her first British Open title in 2019.
