Slut för Karim Darwish

Karim Darwish 33 år, har bestämt sig att lägga av med sin professionella karriär. Karim var etta i världen i 11 månader i 2009 och blev årets världsspelare. Han han spelat VM för Egypten totalt 7 gånger och har vunnit 23 World Tour PSA tävlingar.

Jag och Karim har mötts flera gånger särskilt i junior tiden då var han top 3 i världen. Jag tror att jag spelade min första British Open mot honom och matchen blev ganska kort om jag minns väl. Riktigt duktig och fair play spelare. Jag önskar honom lycka till i fortsättningen.

Här är hans brev :

"After a successful 16 year career and achieving most of my goals,
starting with winning the World Junior Championship 
to reaching the top of the World Ranking, 
I decided to call it a day. I started playing Squash at the age of 6, and ever since, 
Squash has been my only passion.I was lucky I had the chance to pursue my dream as a 
professional Squash player. So it's hard to believe that i 
won't be competing on that high level anymore. 
No words can describe how grateful I am to my Mum and Dad who have always believed in me,
My Brother my soulmate who was the reason I played Squash,
my Wife who was always there for me in my ups and downs.
Of course without my Coaches and the support of my sponsors 
WADI DEGLA, HEAD and RED BULL,I could have never achieved what i have achieved today.
I'm now the Sports Director at Wadi Degla Club 
(One of the biggest Sporting Clubs in the World ),
 who is hostingthe Women's World Championship next December. 
My new goal is helping the Sport reaching the place it deserves.
Finally, Thanks to my team mates from Egypt, I have enjoyed the success we shared together. 
And to all other Squash players on the PSA tour."
