Shabana Retains World Ranking
Lead

In a relatively-unchanged new August Dunlop
PSA Men’s World Squash Rankings
, published today
(Tuesday) by the Professional Squash Association, Egypt’s Amr
Shabana
retains his status as world number one
for the fifth successive month.

The
27-year-old world champion from Cairo maintains
his lead ahead of Australian David Palmer,
at No2, and Frenchman
Thierry
Lincou
at
No3.

England’s James
Willstrop
leapfrogs Anthony
Ricketts
to move into fourth place, while the
Australian slips to No5.

Finland’s Olli
Tuominen
also rises in the new list – overtaking
Australia’s Stewart
Boswell
to move into 14th place.

Australian Cameron Pilley becomes
the only player in the top thirty to record a career-high
ranking:  the UK-based 23-year-old from New
South Wales, who last week celebrated
his 15th PSA Tour final appearance by reaching the climax
of the CIMB Malaysian Open, moves up to
No 23.
