El Sherbini, who is the youngest woman to win four world titles, was playing in her first tournament of the season after suffering with a knee injury.

“The last couple of months for me have been really hard,” said El Sherbini.

“I didn’t know what I was going to do but I took the risk and took the decision that I wanted to play this tournament badly, and I wanted to come and try and see how it goes. – AFP
