Mazen Hesham is an up-and-coming player on the PSA World Tour and first rose to prominence in 2012 after securing his first PSA World Tour title at the NSC Sram Series No.3 in Kuala Lumpur.
Hesham has since built up a prolific reputation for being something of a maverick with his thrilling shot-making and penchant for playing some unorthodox shots making him a firm crowd favourite. The Egyptian captured his sixth PSA World Tour title 2014’s Houston Open where he rose to defeat Stephen Coppinger in a 3-1 win.
Hesham broke into the world’s top 30 for the first time in May 2014 and reached the semi-final of the Macau Open, the first time he had done so at a PSA M50 event. Cairo-born Hesham made it two wins out of two at the Houston Open when he toppled Adrian Grant in 2015's iteration of the tournament to lift a PSA M25 title for the first time.
The young Egyptian reached his first PSA World Series semi-final at the Qatar Classic in November of that year which catapulted him into the world’s top 15 for the first time the following month. Hesham then had to wait a while for another semi-final appearance when he appeared at the Houston Open in 2016 lost to Marwan ElShorbagy over five games.
The Egyptian was then in semi-final action once more a week later in the Sporta IX Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta where he was downed over three games by Spain’s Borja Golan.
Hesham suffered a hip injury during his first round clash at the Al Ahram Squash Open NEWGIZA against Carlos Cornes Ribadas which halted his season as he did not return to action until seven months later at the El Gouna International Squash Open. The Egyptian then suffered a handful of early-round exits as the season came to a close.
The Egyptian then made the quarter finals of his second tournament back, the Life Time Hutkay.fit Houston Open, but he was knocked out by compatriot Mohamed Abouelghar. Hesham then reached the semis of two consecutive tournaments. The Open International de Squash de Nantes and the Harrow Sports Charlottesville Open saw him in the last four, but he was knocked out by Gregoire Marche and Greg Lobban respectively.
He also made the semi finals of the Ohana Malaysian Open, losing out to Leo Au in five games. Hesham also reached the last eight of the Pakistan Open that year, and then the Macau Open in 2018. The Egyptian reached the last 16 of both the Oracle NetSuite Open and the PSA World Championships in the 2018-19 season, before reaching the quarter finals of a Platinum event for the first time in his career, doing so at the British Open at the end of the campaign.
He also reached the last eight of the J.P. Morgan China Squash Open in his first event of the 2019-2020 campaign, before also making it to the quarter-finals of the Channel VAS Championships at St. George’s Hill and the Troilus Gold Canada Cup. Hesham also reached the last eight at the CIB Egyptian Open to start off his 2020-2021 season after the enforced break due to COVID-19.
