|OTHER ||Engy really came to the fore in 1999 when she, Omneya Abdel Kawy and Eman El Amir, captured the World Junior Team title, herself having been a semi finalist in the Individual event. |
By 2002 she had broken into the World Top 30, but it was not until 2005 when she began to move forward more steadily than occasional match wins. The girl from the Mediterranean city of Alexandria won three events that year, including an emotional Alexandria Open when she beat Abdel Kawy in the semis.
The surge continued in 2006 with another win over Abdel Kawy in the Apawamis Open and reaching the final of the Texas Open by continuing her hold over Abdel Kawy and beating Natalie Grainger, together with a semi final berth in the Hurghada International. These results propelled her into the Top 20 and she is made strides towards the Top 10.
She did reach the Alexandria Open final in August 2007, particularly pleasing for Engy in her home city, but Rachael Grinham spoilt th party by winning the final.
Since then a combination of tough draws and injury at the CIMB KL Open in 2008 have hampered her bid to move back to her highest ranking of 12. But although her ranking declined a little there have been recent highs too. One was being a member of the Egyptian team that stunningly snatched the World Team title from England in Cairo in December 2008.
During 2009 while she lost to Raneem El Weleily in the final of the Heliopolis Open in April she did win the Atco Miro in June, also in Cairo, beating prodigy Nour El Sherbini in the final.
Then a win over Jaclyn Hawkes in the World Open in September before losing to Jenny Duncalf showed her improving form.
This was evidenced again in the Qatar Class where she beat Omneya Abdel Kawy and Isabelle Stoehr before losing to Jenny Duncalf in the quarter finals. She beat Abdel Kawy again to reach the final of the year ending Sharm El Sheikh Open before Rachael Grinham stopped her run there.
During 2010 she reached the final of Egyptís Hurghada International after beating Camille Serme in the semis, but here Abdel Kawy took the title.
However, these results propelled Engy to a highest ever world ranking of 11 in June 2010.
In addition to competing on the womenís tour she has a special interest in the menís tour too as she married top Egyptian player Karim Darwish in December 2007.
