Sherif became the first female representing Egypt in a major tennis tournament (senior-level) to record a win, after beating Colombian tennis prospect, Maria Camila Osorio Serrano at the Roland Garros Series.

The 24-year-old went on to beat US tennis player Katie McNally (6-2, 6-4) in the semi-finals of the tournament on Thursday.

A day later, Sherif overcame Giulia Gatto-Monticone in a comfortable 2-0 (6-1, 6-3) win to reach the Roland Garros main draw.

Due to her historic achievement, Sherif was applauded by Liverpool star Mohamed Salah on Twitter following her win against Katie McNally.

“It’s very, very nice to get this kind of support from someone who is already very, very good, and someone who is very special from Egypt,” Sherif told

“Salah is someone who is one of a kind. So it’s very nice, it made me feel like, ‘Oh, someone important is following, thank God’.

“You have to create that belief in yourself, you have to take that path for yourself and you have to work on yourself so hard. And he did that so fast and he’s now one of the best football players in the world.
