Men's October Rankings

Peruvian Elias Rises To No.15 In Men's World Rankings

20-year-old Peruvian Diego Elias has moved up two places to a career-high World No.15 in the latest Men's PSA World Rankings - released today (October 1) - courtesy of sublime run of form that saw him reach the semi-finals of the 2017 Oracle NetSuite Open.

Elias, the former World Junior champion, powered his way past three-time World Champion Nick Matthew - who remains at World No.4 in the latest standings - to reach the last four before losing out to current World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad in a hard fought five-game battle.

Gawad meanwhile remains at World No.2 for a fifth straight month but has narrowed the gap on World No.1 Gregory Gaultier, with the Frenchman notching up a fifth successive month atop the standings while Mohamed ElShorbagy, the man who beat Gawad to the title in San Francisco, remains at World No.3.

Ali Farag (5), Marwan ElShorbagy (6), Tarek Momen (8) and Fares Dessouky (9) complete a six-strong Egyptian presence within the Top 10, with England's James Willstrop (7) and New Zealand's Paul Coll (10) occupying the remaining positions in an unchanged line up.

Outside the Top 10, former World No.1 Ramy Ashour has moved up three places to No.11 following his victory at the 2017 J.P. Morgan China Open in early September, moving ahead of Germany's Simon Rösner, fellow Egyptian Mohamed Abouelghar and England's Daryl Selby - who sits one place above Elias.

Australian duo Ryan Cuskelly and Cameron Pilley are at No.16 and No.17, respectively, just ahead of Spanish star Borja Golan with Mexican Cesar Salazar and Egyptian Zahed Mohamed completing the Top 20.
