El Hammamy Breaks Top 10 in PSA Rankings
Four Egyptians in the top 5, Eight Egyptians in the top 20
CIB Hania El Hammamy has broken into the top 10 of the PSA Women’s World Rankings following her run to the semi-finals of the CIB PSA Women’s World Championship last month in front of the iconic Great Pyramid of Giza.
19-year-old El Hammamy, the reigning World Junior Champion, came back from two games down to stun World No.5 Camille Serme as she reached the last four of the biggest tournament in women’s squash before she was halted by eventual winner Nour El Sherbini.
Nour El Sherbini, who captured her fourth World Championship trophy on her 24th birthday last month, moves up two places to No.2 as she sits behind runner-up CIB Raneem El Welily, who completes a calendar year at World No.1.
U.S. Open champion CIB Nouran Gohar drops a spot to No.3, while CIB Nour El Tayeb is the other woman to feature in the top five after falling a place to No.4.
CIB Salma Hany (No.14) move up one spot to No.4. Meanwhile, two career-high ranking: Yathreb Adel move up one spot to No.16, while Nadine Shahin reaches a career-high ranking of No.19.
Well done all!
