Simon Rösner has returned to a career high World Ranking of No.6
following his J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions victory after the PSA
Men’s World Rankings were released today (February 1).
Rösner lifted his maiden PSA World Series title last week in New York to
become the first ever German squash player to lift a World Series title.
The German saw off Egypt’s Tarek Momen in the final to seal and historic
victory, which sees him rise two places to a joint career high World
Ranking of No.6 – which he last held in 2015.
France’s Gregory Gaultier remains at the top of the Men’s Rankings, with
Egyptians Mohamed ElShorbagy (No.2) and Ali Farag (No.3) completing an
unchanged top three.
Marwan ElShorbagy (No.4) and Karim Abdel Gawad (No.5) swap places to
round off the top five, with the younger ElShorbagy brother claiming a
career high ranking this month.
Tournament of Champions runner-up Momen remains at No.7, with England’s
former World No.1 Nick Matthew falling two places to No.8.
Mohamed Abouelghar and Diego Elias come next at No.9 and No.10,
respectively, to complete the top ten while three-time World Champion
Ramy Ashour rises three places to No.11 as he edges closer to a return
to the top ten.
New Zealand’s Paul Coll drops two places to No.13 with India’s Saurav
Ghosal on the rise this month as he claims a career-high ranking of
No.14 - with England’s Daryl Selby completing the top 15.
Former World No.1 James Willstrop and Australia’s Ryan Cuskelly both
fall three places to No.16 and No.18, respectively. With Spain’s Borja
Golan (No.17), Mexico’s Cesar Salazar (No.19) and Cameron Pilley (No.20)
all rounding off the top 20.
