Shabana Extends World No1 Reign

The
PSA Top Twenty, was unchanged this month, with the top
PSA players inactive since May.

Egypt’s Amr
Shabana
moves into his 16th successive month
at the top of the Dunlop PSA Men’s World Squash
Rankings
, according to the new July list issued
today (Tuesday) by the Professional Squash Association.
 

Since first heading the world list in
April 2006, the 27-year-old from Cairo has won five PSA
Super Series
titles, bringing his career Tour
title total to 16.
 

Teenage compatriot Ramy Ashour holds
his place at No2 behind Shabana – the 19-year-old from
Cairo having picked up four PSA Tour titles
this year.
 

In an unchanged top 20, Australia’s World
Open
champion David Palmer is
at three, ahead of Frenchmen Gregory Gaultier in
fourth place and Thierry Lincou at No5.
 

Remarkably, the highest-placed player
in the new list who celebrates a career-best ranking is Miguel
Angel Rodriguez
, who rises eight places to 46
to become the first Colombian ever to appear in the world’s
top 50. 

The
21-year-old from Bogotá followed
his success in the South American Championships (a
non-ranking event) in his home country at the beginning
of last month to win the Mitsubishi Motors Open in
Sao Paulo, Brazil, to earn the fourth PSA Tour title of
his career.
