Egyptians Mohamed El Shorbagy and Raneem El Welily clinched the men’s and women’s World Squash Championships titles for the first time.
World No. 2 Mohamed, who lost in the 2012 and 2014 finals to compatriot Ramy Ashour, downed his younger brother and world No. 5 Marwan in the final in Manchester on Sunday.
The 26-year-old Mohamed won 11-5, 9-11, 11-7, 9-11, 11-6 in 71 minutes.
“I’ve waited a lot of years for this title. And to have this match against my brother, to share such a moment between the both of us is really special,” said Mohamed.
The 28-year-old Raneem, who lost to Nour last year, was also beaten by Nicol David in the 2014 final.
