England’s
Peter Nicol maintains his grip on the No1 position in the new June
Dunlop PSA Men’s World Rankings, announced today (30 May) by the Professional
Squash Association (PSA), but Scotland’s John White rises to No3 after
his triumph in the PSA Masters in Qatar last week.

White,
the hard-hitting former Australian who celebrates his 30th birthday in
June, has found a rich vein of form since moving to Nottingham in England.
Beaten finalist in the British Open, South African Challenge and World
Open last year, then in the Swedish Open in February, White finally took
the limelight at the second PSA Super Series event of the year in Doha
when he beat France’s Thierry Lincou in the final after overcoming
Nicol, the top seed, in the semi-finals.

Despite
being out of action since the removal of his appendix in March,
Australian David Palmer retains his No2 slot in the June list, but Jonathon
Power slips to four, his lowest position for almost 18 months. The Canadian
won the Super Series Finals title
(a non-ranking event) for the first time earlier this month – then crashed
out of the PSA Masters at the second round stage.

France’s
Gregory Gaultier continues his top twenty rise, moving two further
places to a career-high No16 after pulling off the biggest first round
upset in
Doha with a five-game win over Australia’s fourth seed Stewart Boswell,
the
world No6.

England’s
Nick Taylor and Egypt’s Amr Shabana return to the top twenty at 18 and
20, respectively. Meanwhile England’s former European Junior champion
Adrian Grant, the 22-year-old from London who is now based in Halifax
in Yorkshire, has seen his ranking rise six places to a career-high world
No22 after he secured an unexpected place in the second round of the PSA
Masters after despatching Pakistan’s 13th seed Mansoor Zaman.
