England’s Lee Beachill celebrates his third month at the
top of the Dunlop PSA Men’s World Squash Rankings, according to the new
December list revealed by the Professional Squash Association at the beginning
of the month.

The 27-year-old Yorkshireman from Pontefract has maintained
a lead ahead of his great rival Thierry Lincou, the in-form Frenchman
whose victory in November’s Pace Credit Union Canadian Classic has narrowed
the gap behind the Englishman.

Beachill’s compatriot Peter Nicol holds onto third place
in the list, ahead of Australian David Palmer at four.

Egypt’s 2003 world champion Amr Shabana moves back to
No5, while Scotland’s John White and England’s Nick Matthew slip to six
and seven, respectively.

Lincou is rejoined in the top ten by fellow Frenchman
Gregory Gaultier, who moves up one place from 11.

Adrian Grant is the only player to boast a career-high
position in the December list. The 24-year-old Englishman rises to a best-ever
12 after a successful run on the PSA Tour which included a quarter-final
appearance in the Hong Kong Open in September and a semi-final berth in
the Hungarian Open in October – both against the seedings.
