He is also known as “The Artist.” Their father encouraged both him and his brother, Hisham Mohamed Ashour, to play squash. Now, both brothers play for a living, and they often go to tournaments together. Ramy won his first tournament when he was 16 years old. It was the Men’s World Junior Squash Championship. He is known as one of the best squash players in the world in terms of technical skill. At the height of his career, he won 49 times in a row, which is an amazing streak. At age 22, he was the youngest player since the 1980s to reach the top spot in the world rankings. He doesn’t have a coach or personal trainer. Instead, he chooses to handle things on his own. He is known to go to all of his tournaments by himself. Most of his success has come from training alone every day. During practice, music is what drives him the most.

Early years and childhood
