Shabana
#1 for 18th Month

Amr Shabana celebrates one and a half uninterrupted years at the top of the Dunlop PSA Men’s World Squash Rankings, according to the new September list announced today (Friday) by the Professional Squash Association.

Since first becoming world No1 in April 2006, the 28-year-old from Cairo has picked up five PSA Super Series titles to bring his career Tour title tally to 16.

In a relatively unchanged list, Shabana maintains his lead ahead of compatriot Ramy Ashour at No2; Australia’s World Open champion David Palmer at three; and Frenchmen Gregory Gaultier and Thierry Lincou in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

Malaysia’s Mohd Azlan Iskandar is the highest riser in the list.  The 25-year-old from Sarawak is enjoying one of the best runs in his career after reaching three successive Tour finals since May, including title-winning triumphs in the Mayacamas Ranch North American Open in San Francisco and the CIMB Malaysian Open on home soil in July.  Runner-up in this month’s CAS International in Pakistan, Iskandar moves to 16.

A runner-up finish in last week’s Club El Nogal Colombian Open in Bogotá sees Spain’s Borja Golan returns to the top 20 at 20.  The Colombian success took the 24-year-old from Santiago into the 18th PSA Tour final of his career.
