Elaraby breaks into top 10 of PSA Women’s World Rankings




Egypt’s Rowan Elaraby has broken into the top 10 of the PSA Women’s World Rankings for the first time.

The 21-year-old from Alexandria reached the quarter-finals of the Allam British Open last month and has been rewarded with a two-place rise to a career-high No.10 ranking, said a press release issued here.

Meanwhile, World Champion Nour El Sherbini will enjoy a 42nd month at World No.1. El Sherbini enjoyed a remarkable 2020-21 campaign that saw the 25-year-old win four out of five tournaments – including the World Championship and British Open, where she beat World No.2 Nouran Gohar in both finals – and the Egyptian will begin the 2021-22 season top of the pile.

Nour El Tayeb and Camille Serme begin the new season ranked No.3 and No.4, respectively, while Hania El Hammamy rises two places to No.5. As a result, Amanda Sobhy and Sarah-Jane Perry drop to No.6 and No.7, respectively, while Joelle King stays at No.8 and Salma Hany remains at No.9. India’s Joshna Chinappa falls a spot to No.11, while Olivia Clyne moves up a place to a joint career-high ranking of No.12.—APP
