Egypt’s Hania El Hammamy has reached a career-high ranking of World No.4 after the release of the November PSA Women’s World Rankings earlier today.
The 21-year-old reached the final of the U.S. Open last month and she overtakes France’s Camille Serme, who drops to No.5. Nour El Sherbini stays at World No.1 for the 13th month in succession ahead of U.S. Open champion Nouran Gohar at No.2 and USA’s Amanda Sobhy at No.3.
Elsewhere, Nour El Tayeb falls four places to No.9, with England’s Sarah-Jane Perry (No.6), New Zealand’s Joelle King (No.7) and Egypt’s Salma Hany (career-high No.8 ranking) all rising a place as a result. Rowan Elaraby completes the top 10.
Olivia Clyne and Joshna Chinappa stay at No.11 and No.12, respectively, while USA’s Olivia Fiechter has moved up seven places off the back of her sensational run to the U.S. Open semis and now sits at No.13. Nadine Shahin and Nele Gilis round out the top 15.
Wales’ Tesni Evans falls three spots to No.16, while Canada’s Hollie Naughton stays at No.17. Emily Whitlock rises four places to No.18 to sit ahead of Danielle Letourneau (No.19), while USA’s Sabrina Sobhy returns to the top 20.
Canadian duo Samantha Cornett and Molly Chadwick are the biggest risers on the women’s tour. They’ve both moved up 122 places to sit at joint No.295 following quarter final finishes at the Oxford Properties Canadian Senior Championships.
