Former World No.1 El Sherbini claimed her fourth World Championship title after she defeated current World No.1 Raneem El Welily in the final to retain her title on Friday.
The PSA World Tour Finals includes both a men’s and women’s tournament and brings together the reigning PSA World Champions and all six PSA World Tour Platinum title winners.
Any remaining places are allocated to the highest ranked players on the Road to Egypt Standings and points will be on offer at all PSA World Tour events during the season.
After reaching three finals and winning the Oracle NetSuite Open title, World No.1 Raneem El Welily leads the way on the women’s leaderboard with 6,090 points. World No.3 Nour El Tayeb is in second place with 5,490 points after reaching three finals this season and winning the J.P. Morgan China Squash Open at the start of the season.
In third place is Nouran Gohar, who has already secured her place at the season-ending event after winning the U.S. Open in October, and France’s Camille Serme is fourth with 3,805 points.
El Sherbini comes in at fifth place and after winning the World Championship confirms her place in Cairo, while 19-year-old Hania El Hammamy is sixth on the leaderboard after reaching her first World Championship semi-final in Egypt.
The rest of the top eight is completed by England’s Sarah-Jane Perry and United States’ Amanda Sobhy, while New Zealand’s Joelle King is within touching distance of the top eight with 2,050 points.
