Out of the nine players that managed that “tour de force”, we find four Egyptians, and funnily enough they are also the most recent ones: Ramy Ashour, Mohamed El Shorbagy, Raneem El Welily, Nour El Sherbini.
If Jansher Khan was the quickest to jump the gap from junior to senior champion (18 months only!), Ramy Ashour is right behind him, 50 months, followed by Nicol David (77 months), only three months quicker than Nour El Sherbini (80 months), while Raneem El Welily had to wait over 12 years (149 months) to complete the double!
Thanks to SquashInfo and Howard Harding for these figures!
