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
