|YOUSSEF SOLIMAN PROFILE|
|DATE OF BIRTH||10TH JANUARY, 1997|
Youssef Soliman is one of the most exciting young talents on the PSA World Tour.
Cairo-born Soliman made his PSA World Tour debut in 2013 but initially found the transition from junior tournaments to the professional Tour a challenge and had to wait two years to reach a PSA World Tour final, where he narrowly missed out on winning the Malaysian Tour Squash I title to Tsz Fung Yip.
Five months later, Soliman unexpectedly made it to the final of the 2015 World Junior Championship, but defending champion Diego Elias stood firm to prevent him from becoming the ninth Egyptian winner of the prestigious title.
Soliman then bounced back from his World Junior Championship heartbreak in the 2015/16 season to record semi-final finishes at the JSW Chennai Circuit and Qatar Circuit.
After beginning the 2016 with a first round exit at the Wimbledon Open, Soliman secured three successive tournament in wins in April and May.
Soliman first recorded victory at the Scotland Open where he downed Christopher Binnie over three games to secure his maiden PSA World Tour title.
Victory at the Ipswich Open and Jersey Squash Classic quickly followed for the Egyptian as he swept aside Mark Fuller and Michael Harris respectively in the finals to secure his second and third successive Tour title.
The next year Soliman triumphed again, this time at the West of Ireland Open where he beat Germany’s Jens Schoor over four games to lift the title.
