Top 20 Unchanged In August Rankings

The top 20 of the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Rankings remain unchanged in August, as Frenchman Gregory Gaultier maintains his grasp on the World No.1 ranking for the fifth consecutive month.
 
Gaultier succeeded England's Commonwealth Games Gold medal winner Nick Matthew to the No.1 ranking in April, and Matthew continues to occupy the World No.2 berth behind the man who beat him to the Allam British Open title in May.
 
Commonwealth Games silver medalist James Willstrop occupies the World No.6 ranking, also for a fifth consecutive month, with Egyptian trio Mohamed Elshorbagy, Ramy Ashour and Amr Shabana separating the two men who contested the Commonwealth Games Final on Monday July 28.
 
Peter Barker, who claimed bronze at the Games to complete a clean-sweep for England, continues to hold the World No.8 position while Daryl Selby, who is partnering Willstrop in the doubles competition in Glasgow, is World No.10 for the ninth consecutive month.
 
Elsewhere in the world rankings, Egyptian Ali Farag, who claimed a remarkable victory during the CCI PSA Championship in Mumbai in July by beating four seeds on his way to victory including tournament favourite and World No.16 Saurav Ghosal, moves up 104 places to break into the top 100 for the first time since 2011 and occupy the World No.88 position.
 
Frenchman Auguste Dussourd is the highest riser in the August rankings climbing 106 places to a career-high World No.243.

Women

Nicol David Celebrates World Ranking Century

Just days after becoming the first woman squash player to win two successive Commonwealth Games gold medals, Malaysia's Nicol David marks another major milestone in the August Women's World Squash Rankings by celebrating her 100th month as world No1 in the list published today by the Women's Squash Association (WSA).

The now 30-year-old from Penang first topped the list in January 2006, but slipped to No2 for four months from April before bouncing back in August to begin an unprecedented unbroken run until today.

David's achievements in squash are unparalleled: After becoming the first player ever to win two world junior titles, she went on to claim a record seven World Championship titles amongst a haul of 74 WSA World Tour titles from 93 final appearances.

David pays tribute to her long-time coach Liz Irving for the success she has achieved: "Liz completely revolutionised my squash. She had belief in my ability and constantly adds to my game.

"But she's more than a coach," says David of the one-time world No2 from Australia. "She's my mentor in every way. She's been there before."

David also acknowledges the invaluable help she has had from coachesSarah Fitz-Gerald and Vicki Cardwell; Sports psychologist Frank Cabooter; physio Ronald Fauvel; and her parents.

"The whole team is really vital to me - I couldn't be where I am without them all," concluded David.

In a relatively unchanged world top 20, England's 2014 Commonwealth Games silver medallist Laura Massaro remains at No2, with Egypt'sRaneem El Welily in third place and Glasgow 2014 bronze medallistJoelle King, of New Zealander, at No4.
