    Harrow Sports is proud to announce that Harrow Elite Team member; Professional Squash player Raneem El Welily is the 2016 Windy City Open (WCO) Champion.

In an impressive 3-1 triumph over winner of the most recent World Series event, Nour El Sherbini, Raneem came from behind to win in four games, 9-11, 11-6, 11-3, 11-6. Raneem uses Harrow’s Vapor Squash Racquet.

    Ranked third in the world, this victory marks a return to form for the 27-year-old. It is the first PSA World Title for Raneem since September 2015, when she was ranked No. 1 in the world.

    Raneem had this to say: “I’m lost for words right now…I never thought I’d be No.1 after winning here last year so I’m just going to take it one step at a time. It’s all about baby steps and taking it one match and one point at a time. That’s the strategy. I need to work hard to make sure I have that same attitude and hunger on court for the rest of the season.”
