Power Surpasses Palmer in Inactive Month

Canada’s Jonathon Power rises to
No 2 in the new July Dunlop PSA Men’s World Rankings, announced today
(28 June) by the Professional Squash Association (PSA), behind arch rival
Peter Nicol, the world champion from England.

Power, who withdrew from last week’s
non-ranking Bank of Scotland Super Series Finals with a ‘gluteus minimus’
injury, has beaten the former Scot in their last three PSA Tour meetings
this year. This month’s ranking reshuffle, however comes without one PSA
event having takien place!

The pair are likely to be seeded
to face each other next in the men’s final at the 2002 Commonwealth Games
in Manchester, England, in July, which is also a non-ranking event.

Australia’s David Palmer, who beat
Nicol on the way to winning the Super Series Finals title (a non-ranking
PSA event) for the first time, drops to No3 in the new list. Mark Chaloner
moves up three places to No7 to replace tour veteran Chris Walker as the
highest-ranked Englishman.

Two players register career-best
rankings in the top twenty list: Australia’s Anthony Ricketts, 23, from
Brisbane, rises two places to No11, while 22-year-old Amr Shabana, from
Cairo, consolidates his status as the highest-ranked Egyptian by moving
two positions to No16. A notable top twenty absentee for the first time
since October 1999 is England’s Del Harris, who drops to 23. Twelve days
away from his 33rd birthday, Harris is the longest serving member of the
PSA, who made his first appearance in the world rankings in November 1984
as a 15-year-old
