Egypt’s Mohamed El-Shorbagy has lost the top spot and dropped two places as Frenchman Gregory Gaultier overtook him in the PSA World Rankings.

Gaultier has become the oldest player ever (34 years and three months) to top the PSA world rankings to break the previous record set by Sarah-Fitz Gerald, who topped the women’s rankings in February 2003 at the age of 34 years and two months.

Meanwhile, World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad retained the second place as he blew his chance of topping the world rankings after he failed to qualify to the quarter-final stage of the 2017 Allam British Open in Hull.

Marwan El-Shorbagy moved up to fifth place, entering the world’s top five for the first time in his career after reaching the Windy City Open final last month. Ali Farag also moved up to places to World No.6.

Ramy Ashour, who topped the rankings for the entirety of 2013, dropped three places, while Fares Dessouky moved into the top ten for the first time, as Tarek Momen dropped to No.11.

Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar, who qualified to the quarter-finals of the Allam British Open moved up to career high World No.19, and Omar Mosaad has fallen to sit at No.23.
