After Ramy Ashour suffered a series of injuries that led him to withdraw from two – and miss one – of the big events at the end of the year, it sounded logical to put Ramy in contact with Thierry Lincou and his former coach. Why?

  1. These are great news! Ramy took the reasonable course of action, and did it ASAP too, like the real pro he is. Respect to all involved, and to Framboise for the brilliant advice!

  2. Traning and physical therapy is a part of the solution. But there is another part. Ramy’s movement around the court is truly amazing, but if you watch his footwork versus Lincou’s, that is another part of the story. Ramy often makes those amazing recoveries of an opponents kill shots, but you can often see his center of gravity going past his front knee. Lincou would be doing the splits on the same shot. Ramy can still make the recovery, but it puts incredible strain on the body. If he could make his footwork just a bit tighter and control his balance on these balls (even at the expense of letting a few go), it might extend his career. Sounds crazy to suggest these as improvements to the best player and ball retriever in the world, I know.

  3. Perhaps its wise for Ramy Ashour also to contact Nicol David whose ‘Structural Integrator’ by the name of Mr. Ronald Fauvel has in the last 15 years looked after Nicol’s physical well-being. We never heard of Nicol retiring because of injury. Over to Mr. Ashour.

    1. Thanks for that, but Mr Ronald Fauvel is full time employed by Malaysia, and hence cannot work for an Egyptian or any other nationality. All avenues have been walked and studied, and the adequate solution found. Thanks for your concern and advice.
