Mayar Sherif Makes History & Enters Top 30 Tennis World Rankings

In a momentous victory, Egyptian tennis player Mayar Sherif emerged triumphant at the 2023 Valencia Open, securing the championship title by defeating Spain's Marina Pasolos Ribera, currently ranked 130th in the world, in a thrilling 2-0 match.

This achievement propels Sherif into the top 30 rankings of tennis players worldwide, marking the first time an Egyptian athlete has reached such a milestone. Previously, Ismail El-Shafei held the highest ranking for an Egyptian player at No. 34 in 1975, making Sherif's accomplishment all the more historic and inspiring.
