El Sherbini Stays at World No.1 for 20th Successive Month

Egyptian World Champion Nour El Sherbini has recorded a 20th successive month at World No.1 after the PSA Womenís World Rankings were released today (December 1).

The 22-year-old from Alexandria - who will kickstart her efforts to win a third consecutive World Championship title between December 11-17 in Manchester - defeated World No.2 Raneem El Welily in the final of the Hong Kong Open last month to extend her lead over her compatriot at the summit of the World Rankings.

Franceís Camille Serme stays at No.3, marginally ahead of World No.4 Laura Massaro, while 2016 Hong Kong Open champion Nouran Gohar completes an unchanged top five.

The rest of the top 10 is also unchanged, with eight-time World Champion Nicol David staying at No.6, while Englandís Sarah-Jane Perry (No.7), Egyptís Nour El Tayeb (No.8), New Zealandís Joelle King (No.9) and Alison Waters all retain their spots in the top 10.

Elsewhere, United States No.1 Olivia Blatchford is on the rise to a career-high No.12 ranking, swapping places with Emily Whitlock, who drops to No.13.

After becoming the first ever female Welsh player to reach a World Series quarter-final last month in Hong Kong, Tesni Evans is rewarded with a two-place increase to a career-best No.14 ranking, overtaking Indiaís Joshna Chinappa, who drops to No.15.

Englandís Victoria Lust also falls a place to No.16 ahead of Australiaís Donna Urquhart, who remains at No.17. Hong Kongís Joey Chan, Egyptís Salma Hany Ibrahim and Indiaís Dipika Pallikal Karthik take the last three places in the top 20.
