Egypt’s Mazen Hesham also secures a career-high ranking of No.8 after moving up two spots, with Marwan ElShorbagy and Fares Dessouky dropping two places to No.9 and No.10, respectively.

Karim Abdel Gawad rises to No.11 and Youssef Ibrahim falls to No.12. Gregoire Marche and Miguel Rodriguez stay at No.13 and No.14, respectively, while Nicolas Mueller becomes the first Swiss player to reach No.15 in the world after a quarter final finish at the British Open.

Youssef Soliman falls to No.16, with Saurav Ghosal remaining at No.17. Mohamed Abouelghar drops two spots to No.18, with the final place inside the top 20 going to Germany’s Raphael Kandra, who moves up three places to No.19.

Switzerland’s Tim Roesch is the biggest mover on the men’s tour this month after rising 230 places to No.560 in the world after reaching the semi final of the Sekisui National in April.
