Egyptians have plenty to be proud of as Egyptian men secure 7 of the top 10 world squash rankings, while women secure 5 of the top 10 rankings, proving Egypt's dominance in the sport.
How dominant are Egyptians at squash? Well for the first time in PSA’s World Squash Ranking, seven of the top 10 men’s rankings, as well as five of the top 10 women’s rankings, are incredibly occupied by Egyptian superstars.
Earning the honour of being known as the best squash players in the world is Mohamed El Shorbagy and Nour El Sherbini. However, looking to steal their spot are several Egyptian athletes who are among the world's top 10 in both the women and men's rankings.
Joining Mohamed El Shorbagy in the top 10 are fellow Egyptians Omar Mosaad (3rd), Karim Abdel Gawad (4th), Ali Farag (6th), Marwan El Shorbagy (7th), Ramy Ashour (8th), and Tarek Momen (9th). As for the women, Nour El Sherbini took the number one title, also becoming the youngest ever PSA Women’s World Champion. Looking to overtake her number one ranking are Egyptians Nouran Gohar (4th), Raneem El Welily (5th), Omneya Abdel Kawy (8th), and Nour El Tayeb (10th).
The number of Egyptians dominating the sport is at an all-time high, and with so many players in both top 10 rankings, we can assume that Egyptian will continue to earn the right to call 2om el Donya the world’s best squash-playing nation.
