WOMEN'S SEPTEMBER RANKINGS


David Returns to Top Five in Women’s World Rankings

Malaysia’s eight-time World Champion Nicol David has returned to the world’s top five for the first time since November 2016 after the PSA Women’s World Rankings were released today (September 1).

David, who celebrated her 34th birthday last week, topped the rankings for an unprecedented nine-year reign between 2006-2015 but a period of mixed form then followed for the 81-time Tour title winner and she dropped out of the top five for the first time in over a decade last December.

However, the Penangite will begin September in a top five headed by two-time World Champion Nour El Sherbini, who makes it 17 successive months at No.1, and also containing Raneem El Welily (2), Camille Serme (3) and Laura Massaro (4).

Egypt’s Nouran Gohar falls out of the top five to No.7 after the ranking points she claimed after winning the Hong Kong Open last August were removed from her record, while United States No.1 Amanda Sobhy - who lost to Gohar in the final - also loses points and drops to No.9.

English duo Sarah-Jane Perry and Alison Waters benefit from Gohar and Sobhy’s points loss as they move up to No.6 and No.8, respectively, with Perry rising to a career-high World Ranking. Hong Kong’s Annie Au props up the top 10 for the fourth consecutive month.

Egypt’s Nour El Tayeb falls down to No.14, while Joelle King (11), Joshna Chinappa (12), Emily Whitlock (14) and Tesni Evans round out the top 15 - with Evans claiming a career-high ranking in the process.

Victoria Lust drops a place to No.16, while the rest of the top 20 is unchanged as Olivia Blatchford, Donna Urquhart, Joey Chan and Salma Hany Ibrahim take the final spots.
