World No.1 Nour El Sherbini

By SEAN REUTHE

 

Egypt’s two-time World Champion Nour El Sherbini has maintained her position as World No.1 for a 14th consecutive month after the latest PSA World Rankings were released today (June 1).

El Sherbini sits a place ahead of compatriot Raneem El Welily, the player she beat in April’s PSA Women’s World Championship final, with France’s Camille Serme, British Open champion Laura Massaro and World Junior Champion Nouran Gohar rounding out an unchanged top five.

Malaysia’s eight-time World Champion Nicol David, British Open runner-up Sarah-Jane Perry, United States No.1 Amanda Sobhy and England’s Alison Waters remain at No.6, No.7, No.8 and No.9, respectively, while the only change in the world’s top 10 sees Hong Kong’s Annie Au move up a place to overtake New Zealand’s Joelle King.

Egypt’s Nour El Tayeb is also on the rise to No.11 – a place ahead of King – while the rest of the world’s top 20 is unchanged, with Emily Whitlock, Joshna Chinappa and Victoria Lust completing the top 15.

Tesni Evans of Wales sits at No.16, with Olivia Blatchford, Donna Urquhart, Joey Chan and Salma Hany Ibrahim taking the last four places inside the top 20.
