Gaultier Heads Up July Rankings as Top 20 Remains
Frenchman Gregory Gaultier has retained his World No.1
spot for the second month in succession after the release of the PSA
Men’s World Rankings for July featured an unchanged top 20.
Gaultier is joined by former World No.1s Karim Abdel Gawad, Mohamed
ElShorbagy and Nick Matthew in the top five, with Egypt’s Ali Farag
staying in the No.5 spot.
England’s James Willstrop - a finalist at last month’s Men’s PSA
Dubai World Series Finals - remains at No.6, while an Egyptian
quartet of Marwan ElShorbagy, Ramy Ashour, Tarek Momen and Fares
Dessouky round off the top 10.
Germany’s Simon Rösner, who reached the last four in Dubai, stays at
No.11, with Mohamed Abouelghar taking the last place inside the top
15. Diego Elias of Peru and South Africa’s Stephen Coppinger round
off the top 20.
The biggest risers were El Salvador’s Abrego Aguilar and Costa
Rica’s Sebastian Jiminez Benavides, who both enjoyed an increase of
172 places from joint No.513 to equal No.341 after they made their
PSA World Tour debuts at the Costa Rica Open.
