Elias Returns to Top Five in PSA Menís World Rankings

Peruís Diego Elias has broken back into the top five after the PSA Menís World Rankings for April were released today (April 1).

After suffering a disappointing second round exit to Spainís Iker Pajares Bernabeu at the Windy City Open presented by the Walter Family, Elias bounced back to reach the final of the Optasia Championships, before going on to achieve a semi-final finish at the GillenMarkets Canary Wharf Classic in March.

Those tournaments have elevated the 25-year-old above former World Champion Tarek Momen, who drops down to No.6. New Zealandís Paul Coll stays at No.1 ahead of Ali Farag, Mohamed ElShorbagy and Mostafa Asal, who make up the rest of the top five.

ElShorbagyís younger brother, Marwan, stays at No.7, while Fares Dessouky moves up two spots to No.8 following his title win at the Canary Wharf Classic. Joel Makin drops to No.9, while Mazen Hesham completes the top 10.

A runner-up finish at the Windy City Open - his first Platinum final appearance - has seen Youssef Ibrahim rise six places to No.11, while former World No.1 Karim Abdel Gawad rises a spot to No.12. Frenchman Gregoire Marche falls two places to No.13, with Colombiaís Miguel Rodriguez dropping two places to No.14. Youssef Soliman remains at No.15.

Mohamed Abouelghar falls two spots to No.16, while Indiaís Saurav Ghosal falls to No.17. Iker Pajares Bernabeu moves up five places to No.18, breaking into the top 20 for the first time. Baptiste Masotti rises a position to a joint career-high ranking of No.19, while Eain Yow Ng completes the top 20.

Iranís Alireza Riaz is the biggest mover on the menís tour, rising 132 places to No.619 after reaching the quarter finals of the Commemoration Of The Martyrs Of The Iranian Navy Army and appearing at the Zahra Dental Clinic event.
