Joelle King Into World Tour Finals

New Zealand's King Qualifies for PSA World Tour Finals

New Zealandís Joelle King has qualified for the season-ending PSA World Tour Finals after she beat Egyptís Raneem El Welily in Saturdayís Everbright Sun Hung Kai Hong Kong Squash Open final to lift her first ever PSA World Tour Platinum title.

The PSA World Tour Finals will take place next June and will feature both a menís and womenís tournament. The reigning World Champions and all seven Platinum winners will qualify for the prestigious event - meaning King has joined U.S. Open champion El Welily in booking a coveted spot at the finals.

The other qualifying spots will go to the next highest-ranked players on the PSA World Tour Finals Leaderboard.

King moves up to third on the womenís leaderboard with 3,720 points, behind Englandís Sarah-Jane Perry in second. El Welily, who will go to World No.1 on December 1, has 7,115 points to her name.

Franceís Camille Serme drops a place to fourth, while current World No.1 Nour El Sherbini, World No.3 Nour El Tayeb, World No.9 Tesni Evans and World No.8 Nouran Gohar take the final spots inside the top eight.

Menís Hong Kong Open winner Mohamed ElShorbagy stays in second place on the menís leaderboard behind runner-up Ali Farag, whose title win at the Qatar Classic earlier this month saw him qualify automatically.

Qatar Classic finalist Simon RŲsner comes next in third ahead of World No.4 Tarek Momen, World No.8 Paul Coll, World No.10 Mohamed Abouelghar, World No.9 Karim Abdel Gawad and World No.12 Diego Elias, who make up the rest of the top eight.

The next Platinum tournament will be the menís CIB Black Ball Squash Open, which takes place in Cairo between December 3-9.
