Women's November Rankings


El Tayeb Returns to Top 10 in Women’s November Rankings

Nour El Tayeb’s maiden PSA World Series title at last month’s U.S. Open Presented by Macquarie Investment Management has seen the Egyptian return to the world’s top 10 for the first time since October 2016 after the PSA Women’s November rankings, released today (November 1), saw her rise six places to No.8.

The 24-year-old wrote her name into the record books in Philadelphia as she defeated compatriot Raneem El Welily to claim the women’s title, while husband Ali Farag took the men’s title just hours later to ensure that the pair became the first married couple in sporting history to win the same major sports title on the same day.

El Tayeb also appeared at the Carol Weymuller Open in October, where she lost out to World Champion Nour El Sherbini, who celebrates her 22nd birthday by retaining the No.1 spot for a 19th successive month ahead of El Welily, who swaps places with France’s Camille Serme to take the No.2 spot.

England’s Laura Massaro and Egypt’s Nouran Gohar hold their places in the top five, while Nicol David and Sarah-Jane Perry stay at No.6 and No.7, respectively.

Courtesy of a run of form that saw her reach the semi-finals of the U.S. Open and the final of the Carol Weymuller Open, New Zealand’s Joelle King is rewarded with a move up to No.9, with England’s Alison Waters dropping two places to complete the top 10.

Hong Kong’s Annie Au drops to No.11, while Olivia Blatchford moves up three places to occupy a career-high No.13 ranking - becoming the United States No.1 after former World No.6 Amanda Sobhy dropped 12 places to No.23, her lowest ranking in over four years, as she continues her recovery from a ruptured achilles tendon sustained in March.

Emily Whitlock (No.12), Joshna Chinappa (No.14) and Victoria Lust (No.15) round out the top 15, while Egypt’s Salma Hany Ibrahim moves up a spot to a career-high No.19 ranking.

Meanwhile, India’s Dipika Pallikal Karthik moves back into the top 20 for the first time since October 2016.
