Ramy
Ashour Debuts in Top Twenty

Egypt’s Amr
Shabana
strengthens his grip on the world number
one ranking in the new June Dunlop PSA Men’s World
Squash Rankings
, published by the Professional
Squash Association
– ahead of Australia’s David
Palmer
at two and Frenchman Thierry Lincou at
No3.

Palmer and Lincou faced each other in last
month’s final of the Liverpool 08 Open,
with the Frenchman fighting back from 0/2 down to record
a dramatic win to close the ranking gap on Palmer.

Australian Anthony Ricketts moves
up to four in the new list, overtaking England’s James
Willstrop
, a beaten quarter-finalist in Liverpool.

Lee Beachill and Karim
Darwish
– both of whom reached the Liverpool
08 semi-finals against the seedings – are rewarded
with rises in the June list.  Beachill, the Englishman
who slumped out of the top ten last month for the first
time in four years, returns to No10, while Egyptian Darwish
moves up a single place to No9.

Egypt
also boasts a top twenty newcomer:  Ramy Ashour,
the Cairo teenager who two years ago became the youngest
ever world junior champion at the age of 16, bursts into
the world’s elite for the first time at No20.  Ashour
consolidated his maiden PSA Tour title success in the Athens
Open
in November 2004 by reaching two PSA finals
this year, at the Dayton Open in the USA
and COAS International in Pakistan.
