Egypt’s Nour El Sherbini has remained at World No.1 for a 15th month in succession after the two-time World Champion topped an unchanged top 20 in the PSA Women’s World Rankings released today (July 1).

 

The 21-year-old – whose reign atop the World Rankings is just one month shy of the likes of former World No.1s Rachael Grinham and Cassie Jackman – is followed in the top five by compatriot Raneem El Welily, France’s Camille Serme, PSA Dubai World Series Finals winner Laura Massaro and World Junior Champion Nouran Gohar.

Malaysian icon Nicol David sits at No.6, while Sarah-Jane Perry, Amanda Sobhy, Alison Waters and Annie Au complete the top 10.

The rest of the top 20 is also unchanged, with the likes of Nour El Tayeb sitting at No.11 and Victoria Lust remaining at No.15.

Hong Kong’s Joey Chan and Egypt’s Salma Hany Ibrahim take up the final two spots in the top 20 at No.19 and No.20, respectively.

There was movement lower down the rankings, however, with South Korea’s Hwayeong Eum being the biggest riser after appearances at the NZ International Classic and Matamata Open saw her move from No.209 to No.163 – becoming the second highest ranked South Korean woman on the Tour.

Scotland’s Lisa Aitken also benefits from a huge rise to her World Ranking, moving up 34 places to No.71 courtesy of lifting her first ever Tour title at the NZ International Classic.
