Tarek Momen first ensured he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering from the American University of Cairo before fully committing himself to the sport of squash.
He reached his first Tour final at the 2006 Thessaloniki Open but lost to Borja Golan in the final.
Momen had to wait five years before being able to claim a winner’s prize when he emerged victorious at the 2011 Irish Open in Dublin after defeating Stewart Boswell. In 2012, an impressive showing at the Columbian Open saw him win the tournament ahead of local favourite Miguel Angel Rodriguez in the final.
The Egyptian then shocked everyone at the Malaysian Open where, despite being unseeded for the tournament, Momen forced his way to the final and dispatched compatriot Mohamed ElShorbagy to win.
He made his debut for his country at the 2013 World Team Championships and won all but one of his games as Egypt finished as runners-up.
2014 saw Momen reach the semi-finals of the Hong Kong Open in August before losing out to Gregory Gaultier, which saw him break into the top ten for the first time the month after.
October brought with it Momen’s only PSA World Tour title of 2014 with success at the Macau Open. He finished off the year with a runner-up finish at the Edmonton Open where he fell to Simon Rösner in the final.
The first half of 2015 saw Momen reach the quarter-final stage of three of the four PSA World Series events that he appeared at.
His finest moment of 2015 was undoubtedly making it to the last four of November’s World Championship and he followed that up three months later by reaching his first PSA M70 final, where he lost out to compatriot Karim Abdel Gawad in the Swedish Open final.
Momen’s second final appearance of 2016 came at the Channel VAS Championship in Weybridge but, in his first PSA M100 final, he was halted by Kiwi qualifier Paul Coll.
In 2017, Momen made it all the way to the final of the Houston Open in April in his first Tour final appearance since December’s Channel VAS Championship but lost out to fellow Egyptian Karim Abdel Gawad.
Momen also made the final of the Qatar Classic in 2017, before also finishing runner-up in the Tournament of Champions at the start of 2018.
He also lost out in the final of the Canary Wharf Classic, but has won twice in the 2018-19 season. The Egyptian tasted glory the Channel VAS Championships and the CCI International.
Momen reached the final of the World Championships for the first time in the 2018-19 season, along with also finishing runner-up at the Citigold Wealth Management Canary Wharf Classic and the Grasshopper Cup.
