Men's October Rankings

 

Abouelghar Moves Back Inside Top 10 in October Rankings

Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar has returned to the top 10 of the PSA Men’s World Rankings for the first time since May courtesy of his title win at the J.P. Morgan China Squash Open last month.

Abouelghar, who celebrates his 25th birthday today, defeated New Zealand’s Paul Coll in Shanghai to capture the biggest PSA Tour title of his career and he moves up four spots to World No.9 as a result.

Abouelghar’s compatriot Mohamed ElShorbagy stays at World No.1 for an eighth successive month ahead of Ali Farag (No.2), Marwan ElShorbagy (No.3), Tarek Momen (No.4) and Germany’s Simon Rösner, who completes the top five.

Colombia's Miguel Angel Rodriguez and France’s Gregory Gaultier stay at No.6 and No.7, respectively, while Coll moves up to two places to No.8 to sit one spot ahead of Abouelghar. 

2016 World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad drops two places to round off the top 10, meaning the Egyptian is now at his lowest ranking since November 2015.

A semi-final finish in China is enough to see India’s Saurav Ghosal rise to a career-high No.11 ranking, while 2015 World Championship runner-up Omar Mosaad rises two spots to No.12, which is his highest ranking since February 2017.

Peru’s Diego Elias falls two places to No.13, with Hong Kong’s Max Lee moving up five places to No.14 after last month’s HKFC International win. Meanwhile, three-time World Champion Ramy Ashour drops six places to No.15.

Australia’s Ryan Cuskelly (No.16), Switzerland’s Nicolas Mueller (No.17) and England’s James Willstrop take the next three spots, while Germany’s Raphael Kandra and Declan James both move into the top 20 for the first time at the expense of Englishman Daryl Selby and Australian Cameron Pilley.

James’s title win at the Open International de Squash de Nantes has ensured that he has become the second highest ranked English male, with Kandra rising three places after reaching the quarter-finals in China.
