Egyptians dominate August Men PSA World Ranking as Elshorbagy Returns to World No. 1 Spot.
Mohamed ElShorbagy has returned to the top of the men’s PSA World Rankings for the fifth time in his career after he overtook compatriot Ali Farag to reach the No.1 spot.

ElShorbagy has now recorded 50 months of his career at the PSA men’s World Rankings summit following his semi-final victory over New Zealand’s Paul Coll at the PSA World Championships last month, which saw him take back the No.1 spot that he lost to Farag in October 2020.

ElShorbagy is the fifth longest-serving male World No.1 of all time, with his 50 months atop the rankings only bettered by Jansher Khan, Jahangir Khan, Peter Nicol, and Geoff Hunt.

Farag moves down to No.2, while Egypt’s Tarek Momen (No.3), New Zealand’s Paul Coll (No.4), and Egypt’s Marwan ElShorbagy (No.5) all complete the top five.

Karim Abdel Gawad (No.6), Fares Dessouky (No.7), Diego Elias (No.8), Mostafa Asal (No.9), and Joel Makin (No.10) also round off an otherwise unchanged top 10 for the men in August.
