Momen And Gawad Reach Career Highs
Egyptian duo Tarek Momen and Karim Abdel Gawad have soared up the
March PSA Men's World Rankings released today (March 1) to occupy
their highest ever rankings of World No.6 and No.7, respectively.
After finishing as runner-up to Gawad in the UCS Swedish Open PSA
M70 tournament, which was the highest profile title of Gawad’s
career, and then reaching the semi-finals of the Taeq Colombia Open
PSA M100 tournament, Momen has moved up five places from No.11 to
hold the No.6 spot - improving on his previous high of No.7 which he
last held in April 2015.
As a result of the pair moving up, Colombia’s Miguel Angel Rodriguez
falls two places to No.8, his lowest ranking in over a year, while
Germany’s Simon Rösner (No.9) and Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet
(No.10) also fall one place inside the top ten.
Elsewhere inside the top 20, the Australian pairing of Cameron
Pilley and Ryan Cuskelly both move up to find themselves inside the
top 15, with Pilley holding the No.12 slot and Cuskelly at No.15.
Daryl Selby (No.16), Mazen Hesham (No.17) and Saurav Ghosal (No.19)
also move up one place while Spaniard Borja Golan rounds out the top
20 after falling one place to No.20.
