Gregory Gaultier goes top in Men’s World Ranking
The 32-year-old overcame World No. 4 Omar Mosaad in an electrifying World Open which saw Gaultier claim the most prestigious crown in the world of squash for the first time in his career.
Gaultier moved up in the rankings, above Englishman Nick Matthew who dropped to 3rd and above the outstanding Egyptian Mohamed ElShorbagy, who was on top for an impressive 13 months.
On the other hand, finalist Mosaad moves up to fourth at the expense of fellow countryman Ramy Ashour, the man he beat in the quarter finals of the championship. Tarek Momen, who reached the semi-finals of the competition moved up to 10th.
Former number one, James Willstrop who shocked Elshorbagy in round 3 and beat him 3-1 climbed up a tremendous nine places to return to the top 15, after finally putting his recent injury woes to rest in Bellevue.
Willstrop’s jump in positions was matched by sensational youngster Mazen Hesham, who climbed up a staggering nine places from 21st, to reach a new career-best 13th after reaching the semi-finals in Qatar back in November.
Last but definitely not least: Hong Kong’s Max Lee continued his stable progression and climbed up three places to reach a new high of number 12 in the ranking.
