WOMEN'S FEBRUARY RANKINGS

 

Serme Secures Career High No.2 Position In February Rankings
 
Camille Serme's victory in January's J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions, her second consecutive PSA World Series event win, has catapulted her up two places to a career high World No.2 on the February PSA Women's World Rankings released today February 1.
 
Serme, who also won the U.S. Open in October, moves ahead of Egyptian pair Nouran Gohar - whom she replaces at No.2 - and Raneem El Welily to sit just over 400 points behind World No.1 Nour El Sherbini, the player she beat in the U.S Open final and Tournament of Champions semi-final.
 
"It means a lot for me to be number two in the world," said the 27-year-old Frenchwoman.
 
"It's my highest ever ranking so I'm excited by that because it takes me one step closer to my ultimate dream. But I know the road is still long and the last step is always the hardest.
 
"After losing first round in Al Ahram last September, my coach and I knew that we had to go back and work on improvements that needed to be made in training and really focus on it. I want to keep working hard and improving my game to get closer to that dream."
 
England's Sarah-Jane Perry also moves up to a career high ranking this month as she breaks the top ten for the first time in her career. The 26-year-old moves up three positions to No.8 after a string of impressive performances took her to a maiden World Series semi-final in New York, becoming the second highest ranked Englishwoman on the standings behind World No.5 Laura Massaro.
 
Egypt's Salma Hany Ibrahim moves up eight places to occupy the No.20 spot - marking her first appearance inside the top twenty since 2015 - with Nour El Tayeb, one of a total of six Egyptian in the top twenty, rising two places to No.13.
