Ramy Ashour - The One To Beat In Manchester

Ramy Ashour - The One To Beat In Manchester
Ramy Ashour continues to show why he’s the man everyone must beat to become world champion in Manchester later this year.
 
The Egyptian star will defend his PSA Men’s World Championship crown in October.
 
And if the Cairo born player ends the year in the same form he’s started 2013 then his rivals had better watch out.
 
Certainly, Britain’s top hope, Nick Matthew, has been given plenty of food for thought by Ashour’s current hot streak.
 
The man from Sheffield, chasing a third world crown in Manchester (October 26-November 3), finished runner-up to Ashour in the final of the latest PSA World Series tournament.
 
And the Middle East maestro’s 11-7, 11-8, 5-11, 11-7 success at the  Davenport North American Open, underlined his mastery of the squash court right now.
 
Victory extended his lead over Yorkshireman Matthew at the head of the 2013 World Series standings, he’s unbeaten now in 31 matches and his final appearance in Virgina was his ninth in succession in PSA World events.
 
It followed his success in the JP Morgan Tournament of Champions in New York back in January.
 
Matthew is a distant 95 points behind Ashour and shares second place with his Frenchman Gregory Gaultier.
 
British National finalist and world number four James Willstrop, a semi-finalist both in Richmond and New York, is in fourth place, while Germany's Simon Rosner and Egyptians Amr Shabana and Omar Mosaad share sixth place.
 
The top eight players in the Dunlop PSA World Series Standings at the end of the year qualify to compete in next January's ATCO PSA World Series Finals in London.
