Two-time squash world champion Nour El Sherbini earns World No. 1 rank

On Tuesday, Egypt’s two-time world champion squash player Nour El Sherbini earned the World No. 1 ranking for the 16th straight month.

El Sherbini’s 16-month run matches former world champions Cassie Jackson and Rachael Grinham.

In 2009, El Sherbini became the youngest squash world champion in the sport’s history at 13-year-old.

Now, 21, she has a long list of accomplishments, perhaps the most recent becoming the youngest woman to win the Women’s World Championship in 2016.

The PSA Women’s World Rankings as of Aug. 1 display Egypt’s Raneem El Welily with the no. 2 position in 1,246.250 points. El Sherbini tops the ranks with 1,439.375 total points.
