Men's April Rankings

New Zealand’s Coll and India’s Ghosal Reach Career Highs in April World Rankings

New Zealand’s Paul Coll and India’s Saurav Ghosal have both risen to career-high rankings of World No.5 and World No.10, respectively, after the PSA Men’s World Rankings for April were released today (April 1).

Coll, the highest ranked Kiwi male since Ross Norman in 1993, claimed his biggest title to date after defeating Egypt’s Tarek Momen in the final of the Canary Wharf Squash Classic last month. As a result the 26-year-old has risen two place to climb to No.5.

Meanwhile, Ghosal becomes the first Indian player to reach the top ten of the men’s World Rankings after enjoying a stellar month which saw him reach the quarter-finals of the 2018-2019 PSA World Championships for the first time in his career and the quarter-finals of the Grasshopper Cup.

Egypt’s World Champion Ali Farag remains at the top of the rankings, with newly crowned Grasshopper Cup champion Mohamed ElShorbagy remaining at No.2 and Tarek Momen (No.3) also keeping his place to make it an all-Egyptian top three. Meanwhile, Germany’s Simon Rösner rises a place to No.4 to complete the top five.

Former World No.1 Karim Abdel Gawad and Colombia’s Miguel Rodriguez both drop places to No.6 and No.7 respectively, while Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar (No.8) and Peru’s Diego Elias are both non-movers as they take the other spots in the top 10.

Egypt’s Marwan ElShorbagy drops a place to No.11, while compatriot Omar Mosaad rises one place to No.12. France’s former World Champion Gregory Gaultier drops down two places to No.13 in the world with the former World No.1 still recovering from a knee injury sustained at last year’s U.S. Open.

Germany’s Raphael Kandra, Wales’ Joel Makin and England’s Declan James are all on the rise. Kandra moves up two places to reach a career-high of No.14, while Makin also claims his highest ranking to date, rising three places to No.15. James becomes the new England No.1 as he moves three places to reach No.17.

Egypt’s Zahed Salem (No.16), France’s Gregoire Marche (No.18), England’s James Willstrop (No.19) and Australia’s Ryan Cuskelly (No.20) all complete the top 20.
