ElShorbagy Cuts Gap on Gaultier

The release of the PSA Men’s World Rankings today has seen Egypt’s Mohamed ElShorbagy cut the gap between himself and current World No.1 Gregory Gaultier to just 43 points after his PSA World Championship triumph earlier this month in Manchester.

ElShorbagy, who held the World #1 ranking for 28 months between 2014 and 2017, took a step closer to reclaiming top spot after he defeated Gaultier en route to lifting the biggest title on the Men’s Tour a fortnight ago, beating younger brother Marwan in a historic final to finally get his hands on the coveted World Championship trophy.

ElShorbagy will have the chance to surpass Gaultier at the Tournament of Champions later this month, with the duo set to meet in a final clash inside New York’s stunning Grand Central Terminal.

ElShorbagy sits one place ahead of compatriot Ali Farag, with 2016 World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad and Marwan completing the top five.

Nick Matthew and Tarek Momen come next at #6 and #7, with Germany’s Simon Rösner rising a place to #8. Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar moves into the top 10 for the first time in his career to take the #9 spot as New Zealand’s Paul Coll drops two places to #10.
