Egyptian duo Ali Farag and Nour El Sherbini have maintained their rankings as they stayed at World No.1 after the PSA World Rankings for March were released on Tuesday. 

The lack of PSA World Tour action means the top 20 is unchanged for a second month in a row but, with the CIB PSA Black Ball Squash Open taking place in Cairo between March 12-25, valuable ranking points will be up for grabs as the likes of Mohamed ElShorbagy, Tarek Momen , Paul Coll and Karim Abdel Gawad look to make a move on Farag’s No.1 spot, which he has now held for five months in succession.

El Sherbini also celebrates a fifth straight month at World No.1 but will come under challenge from players such as Nouran Gohar, Camille Serme, Hania El Hammamy and Sarah-Jane Perry when the tour resumes later this month.

Meanwhile, New Zealand’s Lance Beddoes – a former World No.89 – has risen 185 spots to No.503 after reaching the Henderson Rochelle Hobbs Open semi-finals last month in his first PSA Tour appearance since 2018.
