England’s world champion Peter Nicol has reduced the gap behind Jonathon
Power in the new June Dunlop PSA Men’s World Rankings, announced today
(31st May) by the Professional Squash Association (PSA) – but the Canadian
still holds onto the number one slot he reclaimed from the former Scot
in April.

World No2 Nicol, who renounced his
Scottish allegiance in March to become English, rediscovered his form
last week by successfully defending his Irish Open title in Dublin.

The arch rivals are seeded to meet
in the final of the British Open next week at the NIA in Birmingham, where
Nicol will be hoping to win back his world No1 status. Australia’s David
Palmer, runner-up to Nicol in Dublin, retains his No3 ranking, ahead of
fourth-placed Welshman David Evans who will be defending his British Open
title for the first time next week.

In a relatively unchanged June list,
Egypt’s Omar Elborolossy moves up to a career-high world No14, just two
places behind the country’s leading player Ahmed Barada who has yet to
compete on the PSA Tour this year following a back injury.
