WOMEN'S April RANKINGS

 

El Sherbini Storms To No.2 In Women’s World Ranking

El Sherbini Storms To No.2 In Women’s World Ranking

After a sterling month during which she lifted the prestigious Allam British Open title and finished runner-up at the Windy City Open, Egyptian Nour El Sherbini has stormed up the standings to occupy the No.2 berth in the April PSA Women's World Rankings released today.

The 20-year-old has been the in-form player so far in 2016 and moves up three places to a new career high which will come as a boost ahead of this month's PSA Women's World Championship in which she will be many people's favourite for success.

El Sherbini is now just 200 points behind World No.1 Laura Massaro, who remains atop the standings for a fourth consecutive month, while eight-time World Champion Nicol David falls to No.5 - her lowest ranking since 2004. David has claimed just one title on the PSA World Series so far during the 2015/16 season and will be under pressure to perform on home soil when the PSA Women’s World Championship gets underway in Kuala Lumpur on April 25.
David is narrowly behind No.3 Raneem El Welily and No.4 Camille Serme in the standings while British Open runner-up Nouran Gohar moves up to a career high No.7.

Former World No.4 Joelle King moves up to No.9 to make her first appearance inside the top ten since October 2014 while England’s Victoria Lust and Hong Kong’s Annie Au both move up one place to No.18 and No.11, respectively.
