Nouran still at the helm…
CIB Nouran Gohar sees out the season as World No.1, marking four successive months as the female game’s leading player. Reigning World Champion Nour El Sherbini finished the season strongly and sits at No.2 after beating Gohar to win the World Tour Finals last month. CIB Hania El Hammamy stays at No.3.
CIB Nour El Tayeb has taken a step closer to a sensational return to the top 10 as she moves up three spots to sit at No.11. The 29-year-old spent 14 months away from the game due to the birth of her daughter, but has been in tremendous form over the past two months, reaching the semi-finals of both the CIB PSA World Champs and the El Gouna International.
Nada Abbas drops two spots to No.14, while CIB Farida Mohamed’s Mauritius Open triumph sees her rise three places to a career-high No.15 ranking.

The 21-year-old is the youngest man since the legendary Ramy Ashour in April 2008 to feature inside the top three of the men’s rankings and captured the third and fourth major titles of his burgeoning career in June.
CIB Ali Farag retains the top spot on the rankings while CIB Tarek Momen stays at No.6. CIB Mazen Hesham at 8th , CIB Marwan ElShorbagy 9th and CIB Fares Dessouky complete the top 10.
