US Duo Fiechter And Sobhy Make History
In March Psa World Rankings
Two USA players will appear in the top 10 of the PSA Womenís World
Rankings for the first time in history after Philadelphia-based Olivia
Fiechter moved up a place to join fellow American Amanda Sobhy in the
top 10 after the March rankings were released today.
Fiechter was a runner-up at the Cincinnati Gaynor Cup during February
and that has seen her rise one spot to a career-high ranking of No.10.
Sobhy, meanwhile, stays at No.4 after losing out to Fiechter in the
quarter finals of that event.
El Sherbini remains at No.1 for a 17th successive month and is followed
by Nouran Gohar (No.2), Hania El Hammamy (No.3), Sobhy (No.4) and
Sarah-Jane Perry (No.5).
The rest of the top 10 is made up of Joelle King (No.6), Salma Hany
(No.7), Camille Serme (No.8) and Rowan Elaraby (No.9).
Englandís Georgina Kennedy drops out of the top 10 to No.11 and she is
followed by USAís Olivia Clyne at No.12, Belgiumís Nele Gilis at No.13,
Indiaís Joshna Chinappa at No.14 and Egyptís Nadine Shahin at No.15.
Canadaís Hollie Naughton rises to a career-high No.16 ranking, while
Walesí Tesni Evans drops three places to No.17. Emily Whitlock (No.18),
Melissa Alves (No.19) and Danielle Letourneau (No.20) take the last
spots in the top 20.
Japanís Akari Midorikawa is the biggest mover this month after she moved
up 95 spots to reach No.189 courtesy of her maiden PSA title win at the
Aida Sekkei Greetings Squash Championships last month.
