Women’s Nov Rankings : Tayeb back in Top Ten

nov 1st, 2017 | By | Category: Squash in the world

Nour El Tayeb‘s maiden World Series title at last month’s U.S. Open has seen the Egyptian return to the world’s top 10, at #8, for the first time since October 2016.

The 24-year-old wrote her name into the record books in Philadelphia as she defeated compatriot Raneem El Welily to claim the women’s title, while husband Ali Farag took the men’s title just hours later to ensure that the pair became the first married couple in sporting history to win the same major sports title on the same day.

El Tayeb also appeared at the Carol Weymuller Open in October, where she lost out to World Champion Nour El Sherbini, who celebrates her 22nd birthday by retaining the #1 spot for a 19th successive month ahead of El Welily, who swaps places with France’s Camille Serme to take the #2 spot.

England’s Laura Massaro and Egypt’s Nouran Gohar hold their places in the top five, while Nicol David and Sarah-Jane Perry stay at #6 and #7, respectively.

Courtesy of a run of form that saw her reach the semi-finals of the U.S. Open and the final of the Carol Weymuller Open, New Zealand’s Joelle King is rewarded with a move up to #9, with England’s Alison Waters dropping two places to complete the top ten.
