Beachill, Kneipp, El Borolossy, Casteleyn Make Gains

England’s world champion Peter Nicol
celebrates his 40th month as the world’s No1 squash player in the new
September Dunlop PSA Men’s World Rankings, announced today (2 September)
by the Professional Squash Association (PSA).

Despite not including yesterday’s
(1 September) revenge win over Canada’s world No2 Jonathon Power in the
final of the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open, the new ranking list sees
Nicol extending his unbroken run at the top to nine months since January
– and his total world No1 reign now covering 40 months since he first
deposed Pakistan’s legendary Jansher Khan in February 1998.

Australia’s David Palmer holds onto
the third place, while compatriot Stewart Boswell moves back up to four.
A third Australian Anthony Ricketts, 23, from Brisbane, makes his top
ten debut in the September list at 10.

Egypt’s Omar Elborolossy (14) and
Australia’s Joseph Kneipp (13) return to previous career-best rankings,
while Belgium’s Stefan Casteleyn makes a welcome return to the top twenty
(at 17) for the first time since January 2000 when he slumped to 23 from
a career-high world No7 the previous month. Two players celebrate career-high
positions just outside the top twenty: Frenchman Renan Lavigne, winner
of the Colombian Open for the second successive year in August, rises
four places to No22; while South Africa’s Rodney Durbach, who became the
Brazil Open champion last month, leaps 11 places to a best-ever world
No23.
