El Welily Secures World Series Finals Spot

Egyptian World No.3 Raneem El Welily has secured her place at the 2016 Dubai World Series Finals after soaring up the Women's Road To Dubai Standings courtesy of her victory at last week's Windy City Open, the fifth PSA World Series tournament of the 2015/16 season.

With only the top eight players on the Road To Dubai standings qualifying for the season-ending PSA Dubai World Series Finals, which take place in May 2016, El Welily had been teetering on the brink of missing out after a poor season so far. 

But victory over compatriot Nour El Sherbini in Chicago with only one tournament remaining on the women's calendar, the upcoming Allam British Open, means that the Egyptian former World No.1 is now assured of her place in the lucrative tournament.

El Sherbini, current World No.1 Laura Massaro and Nicol David also go into the British Open knowing their place in Dubai is secured while Omneya Abdel Kawy, Camille Serme, Amanda Sobhy and Nouran Gohar are likely to complete the eight-strong field bar a major upset in Hull.

In the Men's standings, World No.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy took an unassailable lead at the top of the rankings after his triumph in Chicago but, with two tournaments still to play, the British Open and April's El Gouna International, the make up of the top eight is still all to play for.

Tarek Momen, Ryan Cuskelly, Daryl Selby, Max Lee and Marwan Elshorbagy are among the top names currently placed just outside the top eight.
