India’s squash star Joshna Chinappa has broken into the top-10 of the PSA world rankings again after the shock retirement of Egyptian World No. 1 Raneem El Welily.

Joshna, who has not played since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, moved up a spot to be in the 10th position. The 33-year-old had entered the top-10 for the first time in 2016. Dipika Pallikal is the other Indian female player who has achieved the feat.

Egypt’s Nouran Gohar is the new World No. 1 following Raneem’s retirement.
