Marwan ElShorbagy Reaches Top Three in Men’s May World Rankings

Bristol-based Egyptian Marwan ElShorbagy has today overtaken France’s Gregory Gaultier to reach a career-high World No.3 ranking and complete the first all-Egyptian presence amongst the world’s top three positions on the men's tour since April 2009.

The 24-year-old defeated World No.2 Ali Farag last week to lift his maiden World Series title at the El Gouna International to join Farag and older brother Mohamed - the current World No.1 - inside the world’s top three as they become the first brothers to reside in the top three at the same time since Brett and Rodney Martin in May 1994.

Gaultier’s drop down to No.4 marks his lowest ranking since April 2013 and he sits a place ahead of Tarek Momen, who retains his place inside the top five.

Germany’s Simon Rösner stays at No.6 ahead of 2016 World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad, three-time World Champion Ramy Ashour, Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar and New Zealand’s Paul Coll, who complete the top 10.

Ahead of what could be his final month in professional squash, England’s Nick Matthew - the 37-year-old veteran who will retire at the end of this season - moves up to No.11, while Peru’s Diego Elias and Saurav Ghosal of India take the next two spots inside the top 15.

Colombia’s Miguel Angel Rodriguez moves up two places to No.14 - his highest ranking in 14 months - with Commonwealth Games gold medalist James Willstrop dropping a place to No.15.

Australia’s Ryan Cuskelly falls to No.16, while Egypt’s Omar Mosaad moves up four places to No.17, which is his highest ranking since March 2015.

Switzerland’s Nicolas Mueller and England’s Daryl Selby sit at No.18 and No.19, respectively, while Hong Kong’s Max Lee ends a nine-month hiatus from the top 20 to take the final spot inside it.
