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
