Gilis Climbs To Fourth In PSA World Tour Finals Leaderboard After Singapore Success

Belgium No.1 Nele Gilis has climbed up to fourth spot in the PSA World Tour Finals leaderboard following her success at the VITAGEN Singapore Squash Open.

Gilis secured her biggest-ever title to date in Singapore after beating her sister Tinne in a brutal five-game battle and had defeated the likes of No.2 seed and England No.1 Georgina Kennedy on the way to the final.

The 27-year-old also became the first Belgian ever to reach the top five of the PSA World Rankings after landing the title in Singapore.  

Elsewhere, Nour El Tayeb has climbed up to third place, with USA No.1 Amanda Sobhy moving down to fifth and Kennedy dropping one place to sixth.

Tinne Gilis and Salma Hany have replaced Nouran Gohar and Olivia Weaver in seventh and eighth place, respectively, with World No.2 Gohar now outside the top eight in ninth and Weaver in tenth.

On the men’s leaderboard, the top five remain unchanged with Ali Farag strengthening his grip on top spot following his victory over Diego Elias in the final in Singapore on Sunday.

Elsewhere, England No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy leapfrogs Joel Makin into sixth and Marwan ElShorbagy is into eighth as he climbs above Mazen Hesham who drops to ninth.

The PSA World Tour Finals are set to take place in June 2024, with the event including both a men’s and women’s tournament, featuring eight players in each.

All Platinum title winners from the 2023-24 season – which are currently Nour El Sherbini, Hania El Hammamy, Ali Farag and New Zealand No.1 Paul Coll – automatically qualify alongside the reigning PSA World Champions.

Any remaining places are allocated to the highest-ranked players on the PSA World Tour Finals Leaderboard, with points available at all PSA World Tour events throughout the 2023-24 season.
