An extremely successful junior player, the former
British and World Junior Champion broke into the top20 in just her second full
year of professional squash. Her first
title wouldn’t come until 2004 however, although already enjoying a formidable
reputation just shy of the Top10.
Following her first win of the Vassar College Class
of 1932 Open in the USA, she reached the final of the Hurghada International
and the Canary Islands Open before doubling her title tally by winning the
Apawamis Open the following year which resulted in her leaping to occupy the
world No.7 spot.
Kawy would hover around this position for the next
couple of years, amassing some impressive results and consitantly playing to
her ranking. The Egyptian had her
breakthrough year in 2010 as she reached a career high ranking of No4, before
reaching her first World Open Final. The
last twelve months have been less favourable however, as a string of early
first round exits saw the Egyptian’s ranking drop drastically at the end of
2011. She currently holds her lowest
ranking in since 2001, but a semi-final appearance at the International Des
Pyramides Open indicated a change in form for the Egyptian. For the rest of 2012 she played to above her
seeding, reaching the final of the Macau Open, the semi’s of the Monte Carlo
Classic and the semi final of World Series event, the Hong Kong Open, taking
out three seeds along the way.
She reached the first round of the Cleveland
Classic as a qualifier in early 2013 and has followed this up with a second
round finish at the CIMB KL Open and the quarter finals of the Allam British
Open in May.
