bohappyramyRamy Records His Longest World No1 Run

1 July 2013

Ramy Ashour moves into his seventh successive month at the top of the Dunlop PSA Men’s World Squash Rankingsto establish his longest unbroken run as world number one in the July list published today by the Professional Squash Association.

The 25-year-old from Egypt first topped the rankings at the beginning of 2010. But it was in January this year that Ashour began his latest run as the world’s highest-ranked player – one which saw him achieve the highest points average ever recorded, in April.

Ashour is the dominant force in world squash today after winning his eighth successive PSA World Tour title at the Allam British Open in May.

In an unchanged world top 20, Frenchman Gregory Gaultier holds onto second place – his highest ranking for more than a year – while Englishmen James Willstrop and Nick Matthew are at No3 and No4, respectively.

Egypt’s strength on the world stage is emphatically demonstrated by the support Ashour has in the elite list, with five compatriots – Karim DarwishMohamed ElshorbagyAmr ShabanaTarek Momen and Omar Mosaad – occupying places 5, 6, 8, 10 and 11, respectively.
