World no.6 Amanda Sobhy, who tore her Achilles tendon in the
semi-finals of the $70,000 Floridablanca Open in Colombia in March
where she was top seed, has vowed to return to the PSA Tour
“stronger than ever”.
The 23-year-old American has targeted a comeback for either the Hong
Kong Open in November or the PSA World Championship in Manchester,
England, in December.
She told Squash Player: “My goal is to return to the Tour in time
for the World Championship in Manchester in December. However, I
just saw that the Hong Kong Open has been moved to the middle of
November, so maybe that will be my comeback tournament. Who knows?
“One thing for sure is that I do not plan to rush my recovery, so I
will return once I am fully ready and my body is 100% healthy and
back to squash competition. I'm looking forward to returning
stronger than ever! Everybody loves a comeback kid!”
