Diego moves up

20-year-old Peruvian Diego Elias has moved up two places to a career-high World #.15 in the latest Men’s PSA World Rankings, courtesy of sublime run of form that saw him reach the semi-finals of the 2017 Oracle NetSuite Open in San Francisco.

Elias, the former World Junior champion, powered his way past three-time World Champion Nick Matthew – who remains at #4 in the latest standings – to reach the last four before losing out to current World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad after going two games ahead.

Gawad meanwhile remains at #2 for a fifth straight month but has narrowed the gap on World #1 Gregory Gaultier, with the Frenchman notching up a fifth successive month at the top of standings while Mohamed ElShorbagy, the man who beat Gawad to the title in San Francisco, remains at #3.

Ali Farag (#5), Marwan ElShorbagy (#6), Tarek Momen (#8) and Fares Dessouky (#9) complete a six-strong Egyptian presence within the Top 10, with England’s James Willstrop (#7) and New Zealand’s Paul Coll (#10) occupying the remaining positions in an unchanged line up.

Outside the Top 10, former World #1 Ramy Ashour has moved up three places to #11 following his victory at the China Open in early September, moving ahead of Germany’s Simon Rösner, fellow Egyptian Mohamed Abouelghar and England’s Daryl Selby – who sits one place above Elias.
