Elshorbagy Breaks Rankings Record As Most Dominant
Male Player Ever
World No.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy has extended his current reign atop
the World Rankings to a fourth consecutive month, braking the record
for the highest ever points average in the process to assert his
position as the most dominant player on the PSA World Tour.
Elshorbagy has taken the spoils at the past five consecutive PSA
World Series tournaments, winning both the Windy City Open and
British Open in March, to record a points average of 2,150.000 -
almost 300 points greater than the previous record amount of
1,872.500 set by compatriot and three-time World Champion Ramy
Ashour in April 2013.
"It has been a crazy month for me," said Elshorbagy, who finds
himself over 500 points ahead of closest rival Gregory Gaultier.
"Winning the Windy City Open in Chicago for the first time and then
defending the British Open title is amazing. It has been a crazy
"When I won four World Series titles last year I didn't know if I
was going to be able to keep it up but to win five World Series
tournaments in a row is a dream and I will keep working as hard as I
can to keep it going.
"Ramy has held this record for a long time and he has changed our
game so to be able to break that record is an achievement that I am
very proud of."
After winning the Canary Wharf Classic Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet
moves up to a career high of World No.7 inside the top ten while
Egyptian Ali Farag, who defeated Nick Matthew to reach the
quarter-finals of the British Open, moves up to a high of No.11.
Elsewhere inside the top 20 Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez,
Spaniard Borja Golan, Hong Kong's Max Lee and Indian Saurav Ghosal
all move up in the standings in the April PSA World Rankings.
