Seven months at the top for Farag
By SEAN REUTHE – Squash Mad Correspondent
Egypt’s Ali Farag heads up an unchanged top 20 after the PSA Men’s World Rankings for September were released today.
Farag, the 27-year-old from Cairo, has now held on to the World No.1 spot for a seventh successive month, while Mohamed ElShorbagy (No.2), Tarek Momen (No.3), Karim Abdel Gawad (No.4) and Simon Rösner complete the top five.
They are joined in the top 10 by Paul Coll (No.6), Mohamed Abouelghar (No.7), Diego Elias (No.8), Miguel Rodriguez (No.9) and Saurav Ghosal.
Marwan ElShorbagy stays at No.11 ahead of Joel Makin (No.12), Omar Mosaad (No.13), Zahed Salem (No.14) and Fares Dessouky (No.15).
Gregoire Marche (No.16), Declan James (No.17), James Willstrop (No.18), Daryl Selby (No.19) and Ryan Cuskelly complete the top 20.
India’s Yash Fadte is the biggest mover in the men’s rankings. The 17-year-old moved up 223 ranking spots to World No.337 after reaching his first ever PSA semi-final at the SRFI Indian Tour earlier this week.
His compatriot, Velaven Senthilkumar, also reached the last four of that tournament, and he too is rewarded with a hefty increase in his World Ranking, moving up to World No.311 from No.500.
