After a sterling month in which she lifted the prestigious Allam British Open title and finished runner-up at the Windy City Open, Egyptian Nour El Sherbini has stormed up the standing to occupy the No.2 berth in the April PSA Women’s World Rankings.
The 20-year-old has been the in-form player so far in 2016 and move sup three places to a new career high which will come as a boost ahead of this month’s PSA Women’s World Championship in which she will be many people’s favourite for success.
El Sherbini is now just 200 points behind World No.1 Laura Massaro, who remains atop the standings for a fourth consecutive month, while eight-time World Champion Nicol David falls to No.5 – her lowest ranking since 2004.
David is narrowly behind No.3 Raneem El Welily and No.4 Camille Serme in the standings while British Open runner-up Nouran Gohar moves up to a career high No.7.
Former World No.4 Joelle King moves up to No.9 to make her first appearance inside the top ten since October 2014
