Gawad Returns to Top Three in PSA Menís World Rankings

Egyptís Karim Abdel Gawad has overtaken Tarek Momen to return to the top three of the PSA Menís World Rankings for the first time since November 2017.

Gawad, a former World No.1, won two titles during November as he continued his 100 per cent record in front of the iconic Great Pyramid of Giza, beating current World No.1 Ali Farag to lift the inaugural CIB Egyptian Squash Open trophy on November 1.

Despite a disappointing defeat to Englandís James Willstrop in the PSA Menís World Championship two weeks later in Qatar, Gawad bounced back to take the honours at the Channel VAS Championships at St Georgeís Hill in Weybridge, downing World No.2 Mohamed ElShorbagy to ensure he rises above compatriot Momen.

Momen captured the first major title of his career in Qatar as he won the World Championship, but still falls a spot to No.4, where he sits a place ahead of the man he beat in the final, Paul Coll.

Germanyís Simon RŲsner (No.6), Peruís Diego Elias (No.7) and Mohamed Abouelghar (No.8) retain their places, while Marwan ElShorbagy rises to No.9, switching places with Miguel Rodriguez, who drops to No.10.

Egyptís Fares Dessouky rises two places to No.11, which is his highest ranking since November 2017. Welshman Joel Makin stays at No.12, while Saurav Ghosal falls two places to No.13.

Zahed Salem rises two spots to return to a joint career-high of No.14, while Frenchman Gregoire Marche drops to No.15. Omar Mosaad falls to No.16 ahead of Willstrop at No.17, while Mazen Hesham, Adrian Waller and Mostafa Asal make up the rest of the top 20. For Asal, itís the first time he has ever featured inside the top 20.

Englandís Joe Lee is the biggest mover on the menís tour, moving up 361 places to World No.249 after he appeared at the Channel VAS Championships last week.
