PSA announce final standings
By NATHAN CLARKE
The line-up for the Women’s Dubai PSA World Series Finals has been confirmed after Egyptian Nour El Sherbini sealed the last title of the season, the prestigious Allam British Open, to move ahead of England’s Laura Massaro and top the 2015-16 Road To Dubai Standings.
El Sherbini has been in supreme form throughout the season, adding the British Open title to the Tournament of Champions crown she won in January to go along with two runner-up finishes at the Qatar Classic and Windy City Open to ensure she pips Massaro, who has also claimed two titles – the U.S. Open and Qatar Classic – to top spot.
Eight-time World Champion and two-time World Series Finals winner Nicol David occupies third place in the standings while 18-year-old World Junior Champion Nouran Gohar confirmed her place among the top eight for the first time ever after reaching the British Open final.
Top-ranked French player Camille Serme, former World No.1 Raneem El Welily and former World Championship runner-up Omneya Abdel Kawy also find themselves in the eight.
The final berth is occupied by USA number one Amanda Sobhy, who will become the first American woman ever to compete at the World Series Finals.
The Dubai PSA World Series Finals takes place in Dubai from May 24-28 when the top eight players will come together in two groups of four.
Players will compete in a round-robin best-of-three series for a place in the knockout semi-finals and beyond for a chance to win the lucrative title.
