Giza-born Karim Abdel Gawad has firmly established himself as one of the world’s leading players after a breakthrough start to the 2016/17 season.
He won the first PSA World Tour event that he participated in, the 2008 Goshen Cup, at the tender age of seventeen and has gone on to rise up the rankings since his maiden title.

2013 was something of a breakthrough year for Gawad. The hugely talented Egyptian produced a terrific performance at the Qatar Classic, narrowly losing to Karim Darwish in the quarter-finals and was duly awarded the 2013 PSA Player of the Year award, in addition to making into the top twenty for the first time in his career.

He followed this up by the stunning number one seed Alister Walker in the final of the 2014 Pittsburgh Open, resulting in a 3-1 win for the Egyptian to capture his first PSA World Tour title since 2011 before beating Chris Simpson to win the Dubai Cup.

The Egyptian had a superb first half of 2015 as he romped to the Pittsburgh Open and Andorra Open crowns his 9th and 10th PSA World Tour titles respectively, before winning the Sharm El Sheikh International Championship on home soil.
