MEN'S MAY RANKINGS


Gaultier Returns to Summit of Men’s World Rankings

Frenchman Gregory Gaultier has become World No.1 for the sixth time in his career, overtaking Egypt’s Karim Abdel Gawad to top the PSA Men’s World Rankings after they were released today (June 1) - making it the first time since 2012 that the World No.1 spot has changed hands four months in a row.

Gaultier, who at 34 years and five months has broken his own record as the oldest ever World No.1, lost the ranking to Gawad last month, but celebrated title successes at the Grasshopper Cup and Bellevue Classic during May to leapfrog Gawad - who slips down to No.2 - and reclaim top spot.

Meanwhile, Mohamed ElShorbagy, who topped the rankings as recently as March, and former World No.1 Nick Matthew stay at No.3 and No.4, respectively.

Egypt’s Ali Farag was a beaten finalist in both the Grasshopper Cup and Bellevue Classic and is rewarded with a move into the world’s top five for the first time in his career.

England’s James Willstrop stays at No.6, while Marwan ElShorbagy, Ramy Ashour, Tarek Momen and Fares Dessouky complete the seven-strong Egyptian contingent in the world’s top 10.

Germany’s Simon Rösner sits just outside at No.11, while New Zealand’s Paul Coll moves up to a career-high No.12 ranking. Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar, who last week captured his first title in 18 months, claims a place amongst the world’s top 15 for the first time.

Borja Golan drops a place to No.16, with Hong Kong’s Max Lee, Australia’s Cameron Pilley, Peru’s Diego Elias and South Africa’s Stephen Coppinger completing the top 20.
