After claiming his fourth career title by winning the VII Torneo Internacional PSA Sporta in Guatemala lat month, Egyptian Marwan Elshorbagy has climbed to a career-high No.17 in the July PSA World Tour Rankings.

The 20-year-old moves up three places from 20th to overtake Australian Cameron Pilley, Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet and fellow Egyptian Karim Abdel Gawad in the process.

Elshorbagy, from Alexandria, is the only player inside the PSA Top 20 to move up the rankings in July. 

South African Christo Potgieter rises a remarkable 98 places, climbing from 275 to his highest ever ranking of 177 just two weeks after winning his first ever PSA World Tour title at the Maggie Beer South Australian Open.
