Farag and El Sherbini Stay at #1 in March PSA World Rankings
Egyptian duo Ali Farag and Nour El Sherbini have stayed at World #1 in the PSA World Rankings for March.
The lack of PSA World Tour action means the top 20 is unchanged for a second month in a row but, with the CIB PSA Black Ball Squash Open taking place in Cairo in March, valuable ranking points will be up for grabs as the likes of Mohamed ElShorbagy, Tarek Momen , Paul Coll and Karim Abdel Gawad look to make a move on Farag’s top spot, which he has now held for five months in succession.
El Sherbini also celebrates a fifth straight month at the top but will come under challenge from players such as Nouran Gohar, Camille Serme, Hania El Hammamy and Sarah-Jane Perry when the tour resumes later this month.
In terms of the biggest mover this month in the men’s rankings, 41-year-old Peter Vaughan has risen 228 places to a career-high ranking of #460 following his quarter-final appearance at the Volkswagen Australian Open.
Meanwhile, New Zealand’s Lance Beddoes – a former World #89 – has risen 185 spots to #503 after reaching the Henderson Rochelle Hobbs Open semi-finals last month in his first PSA Tour appearance since 2018.
In the women’s rankings, Remashree Muniandy has risen 57 places to #300 after making her PSA Tour debut at the Australian Open, where she went out in the last 16.
15-year-old French player Rose Lucas Marcuzzo has also reached the top 300 after being eliminated in the last 16 of the Le Havre PSA Challenger. She too rose 57 spots.
