Charismatic American Amanda Sobhy is one of the leading players on the PSA World Tour and looks set to battle at the top of the World Rankings for years to come.
She secured her first Tour title in January 2010 at the Liberty Bell Open and, after following that up with the Delaware State Open and the Racquet Club International, she became the first player to claim three Tour titles as a 16-year-old.
June 2010 saw her become the the first player from the United States to win the World Junior Championship after a defeat of Nour El Tayeb in the showpiece event.
She won a number of titles in 2012 and 2013 but it was the year after that she started showing her best form as she picked up the Granite Open in March 2014, scalping Rachael Grinham and Omneya Abdel Kawy to claim the title.
She again bested Grinham in the final of the HKFC International two months later as she broke into the world's top 10 for the first time in September 2014.
Sobhy rounded off the 2014/15 season in style, defeating El Tayeb to lift the Texas Open, her first International 35 title.
Boston-based Sobhy also graduated from the prestigious Harvard University during the 2014/15 season after completing a degree in social anthropology and was named PSA Women's Young Player of the Year in May 2015.
The 2015/16 season saw Sobhy cement her status as a top 10 player and she reached her first World Series final in January 2016’s Tournament of Champions, narrowly missing out to Nour El Sherbini in New York in front of her home crowd.
Sobhy also qualified for the season-ending PSA Dubai World Series Finals, where she exited at the group stage.
A second World Series runner-up finish came in August’s Hong Kong Open - with Egypt’s Nouran Gohar proving her conqueror, while she also reached the final of the NetSuite Open a month later before missing out on the title after a defeat to England’s Laura Massaro.
Sobhy went on to meet Camille Serme in the semi-final of the U.S. Open in 2016 and reached the semi-final of the Ciudad De Floridablanca, however injury saw her retire from the game, handing victory to US teammate Olivia Blatchford. A week after the tournament, Sobhy was forced to have surgery on a ruptured left Achilles tendon and was sidelined for most of the year.
She came back from injury in time for the Tournament of Champions at the start of 2018, but could only reach the Last 16 on her return. The American then reached the semis of the Cleveland Classic, but lost out to Joelle King.
Sobhy secured his first title in three years in the 2018 Texas Open, defeating Reeham Sedky to lift the trophy. In the summer, she won Gold in both the singles and doubles at the Pan Am Games.
Sobhy beat her sister, Sabrina, to win the Gold Medal in the singles, before teaming up with her to take the doubles crown. She then made the quarter finals in both the US Open and Carol Weymuller Open in the latter part of 2018.
After a series of exits in the last 16, Sobhy won the Texas Open for a second consecutive year. She then reached the quarter finals of the DPD Open, before making the last four at both the El Gouna International and the Manchester Open.
In the summer of 2019, the US No.1 did the triple-double as repeated her feat from the 2015 Pan-Am Games. Sobhy won Gold Medals in the Women’s singles, beating compatriot Olivia Blatchford Clyne in the final. She then won the women’s doubles alongside younger sister Sabrina, before winning the team event with both Blatchford Clyne and her younger sibling.
