Australia’s David Palmer maintains his hold on the world No1 position
in the new November Dunlop PSA Men’s World Rankings, announced today (31st
October) by the Professional Squash Association (PSA) – but England’s
world champion and former world No1 Peter Nicol moves up to No2 and is
now just two points behind his Antipodean rival.

Nicol, who lost his world No1 ranking
to Palmer in September, has beaten the British Open champion in their
five PSA Tour meetings since April, including the final of the Qatar Classic,
the richest event of the year, at the beginning of October. Canada’s Jonathon
Power, a quarter-final casualty in Qatar, slips to No3 in the new list
– finding himself outside the world top two for the first time since December
1998.

Scotland’s Australian-born John White
leaps to a career-high No4 in

Stewart Boswell – now # 6

the November rankings, boosted by
his semi-final berth in Qatar following his shock straight games victory
over Power. Qatar Classic semi-finalist Stewart Boswell becomes Australia’s
second highest-ranked player for the first time after jumping five places
to make his top ten debut at No6. The 23-year-old from Canberra was unbeaten
in seven matches as he helped Australia win the Men’s World Team title
(a non-ranking event) in Melbourne last week.

Olli Tuominen, 22, from Helsinki,
celebrates a career-high No19 position to become the first Finn to appear
in the PSA top twenty since Sami Elopuro in 1996.
