Amanda Sobhy Earns Sixth National Title; Douglas Claims First
World No. 5 Amanda Sobhy earned her sixth U.S. Women’s Championship title without dropping a game, while Andrew Douglas lifted the S.L. Green U.S. Men’s Championship trophy for the first time in his third final appearance Friday, April 28, at the Arlen Specter US Squash Center in Philadelphia.
Douglas, who reached the finals in 2017 and 2018 as a junior and student at Penn, defeated his training partner and seven seed Spencer Lovejoy in a four-game final, and adds a new name to the S.L. Green Trophy. Sobhy lifted the Desai Family Cup without dropping a game for the second year in a row including a three-game final win against first-time finalist Olivia Fiechter. Sobhy matched Natalie Grainger’s record of six women’s national titles with her win.
