Women's April Rankings

El Sherbini Closes Gap on El Welily at the Top of Womenís World Rankings

Nour El Sherbiniís title win at the 2018-2019 PSA World Championships in Chicago last month has cut the gap between her and the current World No.1 Raneem El Welily to under 200 points after the PSA Womenís World Rankings for April were released today (April 1).
An impressive display inside the all-glass showcourt held in Chicagoís Union Station saw El Sherbini defeat fellow Egyptian El Tayeb in the title decider to claim her third World Championship crown.

El Welily keeps her place at the top of the World Rankings following her win at the inaugural womenís Black Ball Squash Open held in Cairo, Egypt - where she beat El Sherbini in the final - while compatriot El Tayeb remains at No.3 to complete an all-Egyptian top three for the second consecutive month.

Franceís Camille Serme (No.4) and New Zealandís Joelle King (No.5) complete an unchanged womenís top five.

Englandís Sarah-Jane Perry, meanwhile, remains at No.6, while Egyptís Nouran Gohar (No.7) and Englandís Laura Massaro (No.8) swap places. Welshwoman Tesni Evans rises back to a joint career-high of No.9, with Englandís Alison Waters completing the top 10.

United Statesí No.1 Amanda Sobhy rises one place to No.12 following her win at the Texas Open yesterday, which saw the American claim her biggest PSA title to date. Her opponent in the final, Englandís Victoria Lust, also rises a place to No.13, with Hong Kongís Annie Au (No.11), Egyptís Salma Hany (No.14) and Indiaís Joshna Chinappa (No.15) all occupying the other spots in the top 15.

Elsewhere, Malaysiaís eight-time World Champion Nicol David rises two places to come back into the top 20 at No.19 with Egyptís Hania El Hammamy (No.16), Hong Kongís Joey Chan (No.17), Egyptís Yathreb Adel (No.18) and Americaís Olivia Blatchford Clyne (No.20) completing the top 20.
