Egypt’s Nour El Sherbini has stayed at World No.1 after the PSA Women’s World Rankings for December were released today.
El Sherbini makes it two successive months at World No.1 – and a 33rd month in total – and she will headline the draw at the women’s CIB Black Ball Open next week, which takes place between December 7-12.
The women’s top 20 is unchanged, with Nouran Gohar (No.2), Nour El Tayeb (No.3), Camille Serme (No.4) and Hania El Hammamy joining El Sherbini in the top five.
The rest of the top 10 is made up of Sarah-Jane Perry (No.6), Amanda Sobhy (No.7), Joelle King (No.8), Tesni Evans (No.9) and Salma Hany.
India’s Joshna Chinappa sits just outside of the top 10 at No.11, ahead of Nele Gilis (No.12), Olivia Clyne (No.13), Rowan Elaraby (No.14) and Yathreb Adel (No.15).
Meanwhile, the top 20 is completed by Alison Waters (No.16), Nadine Shahin (No.17), Tinne Gilis (No.18), Nada Abbas (No.19) and Hollie Naughton.
The biggest movers on the women’s tour are Swiss pair Alina Poessl and Kate Gadola. Uster-based Poessl moves up 97 places to World No.234 after reaching the quarter-finals of the Liechtenstein Open, PSA Challenger Tour event.
Gadola, from Greifensee, also appeared in Liechtenstein and rose 66 places to No.265 after bowing out in the last 16 to compatriot Cassandra Fitze.
