Six Egyptians in PSA men’s top 10
By SEAN REUTHE
Egypt’s Mohamed ElShorbagy has maintained his place at the summit of the PSA Men’s World Rankings, released today (July 1st), for the seventh consecutive month.
The 25-year-old, whose dominant form over the past season saw him lift six of seven World Series titles, has a commanding lead over World Champion Gregory Gaultier and compatriot Omar Mosaad, who sit at No.2 and No.3, respectively.
England’s Nick Matthew remains at No.4, while Colombia’s Miguel Angel Rodriguez stays at No.5. Marwan Elshorbagy, the younger brother of World No.1 Mohamed, celebrates a third successive month inside the top 10 at No.6 in the world and is one place above Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet.
Egyptian trio Karim Abdel Gawad, Ali Farag and Tarek Momen round off the top 10 and occupy the No.8, No.9 and No.10 positions, respectively.
Three-time World Champion Ramy Ashour stays at No.12, while Australian No.1 Cameron Pilley, who reached the final of May’s PSA Dubai World Series Finals, is at No.14. English duo James Willstrop, at No.19, and Daryl Selby take the last two spots inside the top 20.
Elsewhere, Australian veteran Mike Corren’s record-breaking win at last month’s Golden Open, where he became the oldest ever PSA World Tour title winner at the age of 42 years and 99 days, has seen him move up a meteoric 78 places to occupy No.168.
