Nouran Gohar is another immensely talented youngster fresh off the Egyptian production line of premier squash players.
She lifted her first Tour title at the Prague Open in December 2013 where she played to her seeding to see off Luie Fialova to triumph at just 16-years-of-age.
Gohar earned another title the following year at the Irish Open before her superb victory over Omneya Abdel Kawy in the final of the Monte Carlo Classic elevated her into the world's top 20 for the first time.
A superb quarter-final finish at the Texas Open in April 2015 ensured that Gohar would breach the top 15 in the world.
Three months later, Gohar announced her arrival as one of the world’s finest young talents as she won the World Junior Championship, dispatching compatriot Habiba Mohamed in the final.
She stunned Malaysian superstar Nicol David and then British Open champion Camille Serme in the China Open the following month and made it all the way to the final before losing out to Raneem El Welily.
After reaching the same stage at the Macau Open, she moved into the world’s top 10 in October 2015.
2016 saw Gohar reach a first World Series final at the Tournament of Champions, before she became the second youngest British Open finalist of the modern era thanks to notable wins over El Welily and Serme.
Despite losing out to El Sherbini, Gohar’s fine form extended into the World Championship a month later, where she reached the last four, again losing out to El Sherbini.
A splendid breakout season was rounded off with a debut appearance at the PSA Dubai World Series Finals, where the teenager bowed out in the group stage.
However, she made amends in the first tournament of the 2016/17 campaign as she defeated American Amanda Sobhy to capture the Hong Kong Open crown in August 2016 - her first World Series title - eventually rising into the world’s top two five months later.
