Salma Hany (EGY) 3-0 Olivia Fiechter (USA) 12-10, 11-5, 11-7 (35m)
It was a tricky first match, it’s so hard when you never played before, and it was cold out there. It’s hard to find your perfect length. So I made sure I’d taken an good solid start, but she pushed me, maybe I didn’t play my best squash, but still it’s good to get a 3/0 win.
My mum was watching, so was my sparring partner Sergany, that was a great feeling, and I’m looking forward to playing Joelle in two days.
In Cleveland, right before Blackball, I had a knee dislocation, which means that pretty much all the ligaments in my knee were strained. So happy now to be fit again, I am enjoying my new fitness coach’s program, Mohamed Shihy, I feel the difference, I’m fitter, stronger.
Also I’ve been traning with Wael el Hindi for about a year now, he was here in the summer, we had a good batch of matches, I’m so lucky to have him, we talk all the time. I’m really happy with my team, I’m enjoying my squash, we’ll see where it goes. I’m just happy.
