Omar Mosaad moves up to three in the world


Egyptian trio Omar Mosaad, Marwan ElShorbagy and Ali Farag have moved up to career high positions inside the top ten of the PSA Men’s World Rankings, released today (June 1st), to occupy the World No.3, No.6 and No.9 positions, respectively.

The 28-year-old Mosaad moves up one place to No.3 and leapfrogs England’s three-time World Champion Nick Matthew.

His drop to No.4 is his lowest ranking since January 2015, while ElShorbagy moves ahead of Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet to occupy the No.6 position in a top ten that is headed by elder brother Mohamed ElShorbagy – who keeps his grasp on the World No.1 beth for a sixth consecutive month.

After breaking into the top ten for the first time in his career last month Farag, the 25-year-old Harvard graduate, moves ahead of compatriot Tarek Momen to No.9 with No.8 Karim Abdel Gawad completing a six-strong Egyptian contingent inside the top ten.

Elsewhere inside the top 20, Australia’s Ryan Cuskelly moves up three places to No.16, just two positions behind compatriot and recent PSA Dubai World Series Finals runner-up Cameron Pilley, with England’s Daryl Selby breaking back into the top 20 after falling to No.21 last month, his first exit from the top 20 in seven years.
