WOMEN'S March RANKINGS


Evans Returns to Top 20 After Women’s March Rankings Are Released

The PSA Women’s World Rankings for March have been announced today (March 1), with Tesni Evans of Wales claiming a place amongst the world’s top 20 for the second time in her career.

Evans, the 24-year-old from Rhyl, appeared in last month’s Cleveland Classic and made it to the quarter-final stage before losing out to the in-form Camille Serme, who holds on to her World No.2 ranking for a second straight month.

France’s Serme - who currently leads the Women’s PSA Road to Dubai Standings after triumphs at the Delaware Investments U.S. Open and J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions in recent months - is 400 points behind World No.1 Nour El Sherbini, the Egyptian World Champion who retains top spot for a 10th consecutive month.

Evans’ rise to No.19 is the only change in the world’s top 20, with Raneem El Welily - who will today attempt to defend her Windy City Open crown against El Sherbini - at No.3, Nouran Gohar at No.4 and Laura Massaro rounding out the top five.

United States No.1 Amanda Sobhy (No.6), Malaysia’s eight-time World Champion Nicol David (No.7), England’s Sarah-Jane Perry (No.8), Egypt’s Omneya Abdel Kawy (No.9) and former World No.3 Alison Waters complete the top 10.

New Zealand’s Joelle King sits a place behind Waters as she plots a return to the world’s top 10, while the likes of Nour El Tayeb, Emily Whitlock and Joey Chan all hold onto their respective rankings of No.13, No.15 and No.17 for a second month in a row.

Egypt’s Salma Hany Ibrahim takes the last spot inside the world’s top 20.
