Charismatic American Amanda Sobhy is one of the leading players on the PSA World Tour and looks set to battle at the top of the World Rankings for years to come.
She secured her first Tour title in January 2010 at the Liberty Bell Open and, after following that up with the Delaware State Open and the Racquet Club International, she became the first player to claim three Tour titles as a 16-year-old.
June 2010 saw her become the the first player from the United States to win the World Junior Championship after a defeat of Nour El Tayeb in the showpiece event.
She won a number of titles in 2012 and 2013 but it was the year after that she started showing her best form as she picked up the Granite Open in March 2014, scalping Rachael Grinham and Omneya Abdel Kawy to claim the title.
She again bested Grinham in the final of the HKFC International two months later as she broke into the world's top 10 for the first time in September 2014.
Sobhy rounded off the 2014/15 season in style, defeating El Tayeb to lift the Texas Open, her first International 35 title.
Boston-based Sobhy also graduated from the prestigious Harvard University during the 2014/15 season after completing a degree in social anthropology and was named PSA Women's Young Player of the Year in May 2015.
The 2015/16 season saw Sobhy cement her status as a top 10 player and she reached her first World Series final in January 2016’s Tournament of Champions, narrowly missing out to Nour El Sherbini in New York in front of her home crowd.
Sobhy also qualified for the season-ending PSA Dubai World Series Finals, where she exited at the group stage.
A second World Series runner-up finish came in August’s Hong Kong Open - with Egypt’s Nouran Gohar proving her conqueror, while she also reached the final of the NetSuite Open a month later before missing out on the title after a defeat to England’s Laura Massaro.
Sobhy went on to meet Camille Serme in the semi-final of the U.S. Open in 2016 and reached the semi-final of the Ciudad De Floridablanca, however injury saw her retire from the game, handing victory to US teammate Olivia Blatchford. A week after the tournament, Sobhy was forced to have surgery on a ruptured left Achilles tendon and was sidelined for most of the year.
