CIB Mohamed Abouelghar is one of the most entertaining and exciting players on the PSA World Tour, spending the last six years inside the world’s top 20 and reaching a highest ranking of World No.7 in 2019. His ranking has slipped of late due to a knee injury that has plagued the 28-year-old for a number of years now.
His last event was the Canary Wharf Classic in November 2021 where he lost out to England’s James Willstrop. Abouelghar hasn’t featured in a PSA event since. We caught up with Mohamed to check on his recovery and get some more information about his progress.
So, what happened?
“So I’ve had this for almost a year and a half now. I had pain in my knee. But I didn’t know where the pain was coming from. I had so many orthopaedics, many physios and no one could really put their finger on what the problem is.
