Nicol Celebrates 60th Month As World No1

England’s Peter Nicol celebrates his 60th month as world
No1, according to the new September Dunlop PSA Men’s World Squash Rankings,
announced today (1 September) by the Professional Squash Association (PSA).

The Scottish-born 31-year-old first topped the world rankings
in February 1998 and, following a remarkably consistent PSA Tour run,
has not slipped out of the top three over the six-year period. Since going
full-time in 1992, Nicol has reached 66 PSA finals and claimed 48 titles
– and this week began his bid to win a fourth title in five years in the
Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open.

Nicol maintains his lead over compatriot Lee Beachill
– winner of last month’s Mamut English Open – at two, France’s Thierry
Lincou at three, and Australian David Palmer at four.

Egypt’s world champion Amr Shabana moves to a career-best-equalling
fifth place, ahead of Canada’s Jonathon Power at six.

England’s former world junior champion James Willstrop,
the 21-year-old from Pontefract, moves up one place to a career-high world
No12 after reaching the English Open semi-finals.

Fellow Yorkshireman Simon Parke, who reached the final
of the English Open as a qualifier, is rewarded for his success by an
eleven-place rise to 24 in the new list.

Australians Dan Jenson and Paul Price both return to the
top twenty at 20. For Jenson, who has been plagued with injury since reaching
a career-high world No5 in January 1999, it marks his return to the top
twenty after a four-year absence.
