Elshorbagy Is New World No.1

0,,13121~13193136,0023-year-old Egyptian Mohamed Elshorbagy has climbed to the top of the PSA World Tour rankings, overtaking 31-year-old Frenchman Gregory Gaultier.

He becomes the fourth youngest player ever to become squash World No.1. Elshorbagy enters the record books behind only Pakistani legends Jahangir & Jansher Khan (who both topped the charts aged 18) and compatriot Ramy Ashour who became number one aged 22.  His victory over Gaultier in the semi-finals of the 2014 Delaware Investments US Open and Nick Matthew’s defeat to four-time World Champion Amr Shabana in the other last four encounter means that he will sit on top the PSA charts for the first time in his career (when the latest rankings come out in November 1st)

Mohamed described it as a dream moment come true. “It feels unbelievable right now,”said Elshorbagy. “It’s been a dream to get to that spot and I can’t believe I’m there right now.”
