Dessouky Breaks Back Into Top 10 of PSA Menís World Rankings

Egyptís Fares Dessouky will feature in the top 10 of the PSA Menís World Rankings for the first time since November 2017 after the 26-year-old moved up three places to No.8 in the January rankings, released today (January 1).

Dessouky ended 2020 by coming back from two games down against World No.1 Ali Farag to capture the CIB Black Ball Squash Open title last month, the biggest of his career.

Farag begins 2021 at World No.1 - just as he did in 2020 - and he is followed by Mohamed ElShorbagy, Tarek Momen, Paul Coll and Karim Abdel Gawad in the top five.

Marwan ElShorbagy (No.6), Diego Elias (No.7), Joel Makin (No.9) and Miguel Rodriguez all retain their places inside the top 10.

As a result of Simon RŲsnerís retirement, several players have enjoyed a one-place increase to their World Ranking. Mohamed Abouelghar rises to No.11, while World Junior Champion Mostafa Asal enjoys a two-place increase to a career-high No.12.

Saurav Ghosal stays at No.13, while the remaining members of the top 20 move up a spot. RŲsnerís retirement means Mexicosí Cesar Salazar returns to the top 20 for the first time since February 2018, with the other places taken up by Mazen Hesham (No.14), Gregoire Marche (No.15), Omar Mosaad (No.16), James Willstrop (No.17), Zahed Salem (No.18) and Adrian Waller (No.19).

Kuwaitís Abdullah Al Muzayen is the biggest mover on the menís tour, rising 195 places to World No.454. Meanwhile, Qatarís Salem Al Malki enjoyed a 147-place rise to World No.311 after reaching the semi-finals of the QSF 4 last month.
