El Tayeb reaches Top Three

Egypt’s Nour El Tayeb has moved into the world’s top three for the first time in her career in the PSA Women’s World Rankings for February.

El Tayeb moves up four places courtesy of a semi-final placing at the inaugural Saudi PSA Women’s Squash Masters earlier in January which she followed up with a runner-up finish at the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions to continue a rich vein of form that also saw her capture the U.S. Open in October.

The 24-year-old Egyptian fell just short of clinching the Tournament of Champions title in New York as she was defeated by compatriot Nour El Sherbini – who retains her place at the top for the 22nd successive month ahead of World Champion Raneem El Welily.

El Sherbini enjoyed a formidable start to 2018, lifting both the Saudi PSA Women’s Squash Masters and Tournament of Champions titles to take her tally to five titles so far this season to extend her lead at the top of the rankings.

Meanwhile, England’s Laura Massaro stays at #4, while France’s Camille Serme drops to #5 for the first time since December 2016.

Egypt’s Nouran Gohar and Malaysia’s Nicol David both drop a place, while England’s Sarah-Jane Perry, New Zealand’s Joelle King and England’s Alison Waters complete the top ten.
