He even broke compatriot Ramy Ashour’s record for the highest ever World Rankings points average in April. He followed that up by shattering the record again a month later. For his exceptional performances through the year, he was crowned the 2016 PSA Men’s Player of the Year.

Keeping up

As tournaments pass and years continue to come, El Shorbagy still has many accomplishments to occur. We will be watching to see when something new comes along. As of right now, the Beast has three British Opens and one World Championship trophy in his cabinet.
