El Welily is New Women’s World No.1

Egypt’s Raneem El Welily has become the new women’s World No.1 after the PSA Women’s World Rankings for December were released today (December 1).

El Welily became the first female Egyptian in any sport to become World No.1 when she ended Nicol David’s record nine-year reign at World No.1 back in September 2015. She then topped the rankings for four months until surrendering the spot to England’s Laura Massaro in January 2016.

But her run to the final of the Hong Kong Open last week - coupled with a quarter-final defeat for compatriot Nour El Sherbini - means that the 29-year-old has once again claimed the coveted World No.1 spot, ending El Sherbini’s 31-month reign in the process.

"I started this season with the target of doing my best in every tournament and every match, to try and make it to as many finals possible and hopefully maybe win a title or two," said El Welily.

"I was lucky to have a good start to the season, but the second half of the season will definitely be very exciting. The women's game is currently so competitive, and each girl is proving to be at her best this season."

El Sherbini drops to No.2 ahead of compatriot Nour El Tayeb, while New Zealand’s Joelle King rises three places to No.4 after she beat El Welily in Hong Kong to win her first PSA World Tour Platinum title. France’s Camille Serme completes the top five.

Elsewhere, Sarah-Jane Perry (No.6) becomes the new England No.1, with the previous holder of that honour - Laura Massaro - tumbling three places to No.8 to record her lowest ranking since March 2011.

Nouran Gohar rises to No.7, while Wales’ Tesni Evans and England’s Alison Waters close out the top 10. Malaysia’s eight-time World Champion Nicol David drops out of the top 10, falling two places to No.12.

Hong Kong’s Annie Au rises a spot to No.11, with United States No.1 Amanda Sobhy staying at No.13. England’s Victoria Lust rises two places to No.14, while India’s Joshna Chinappa falls to No.15.

Egypt’s Salma Hany (No.16), United States’ Olivia Blatchford Clyne (No.17), Hong Kong’s Joey Chan (No.18), Australia’s Donna Lobban (No.19) and Hania El Hammamy are the other players to feature in the top 20.
