Nearly one year after three Americans reached the world’s top twenty for the first time in January 2021, Team USA celebrates another milestone as four women–Amanda Sobhy, Olivia Blatchford Clyne, Olivia Fiechter and Sabrina Sobhy–break into the top twenty in November’s PSA World Rankings.
Fiechter headlines the rankings shift with a seven-position jump from world No. 20 to a new career high world No. 13. The twenty-six-year-old Philadelphian made a career breakthrough at the U.S. Open presented by Truist at the Arlen Specter US Squash Center in October, where she reached her first career Platinum Quarterfinal and Semifinal.
Both Amanda Sobhy and Olivia Blatchford Clyne maintain their respective career high rankings of world No. 3 and world No. 11. Sabrina Sobhy returns to world No. 20 for the sixth month this year.
Haley Mendez moves up one position to a new career high world No. 40, and eighteen-year-old Marina Stefanoni moves up five places to world No. 66 after her first career top twenty upset at the U.S. Open.
In the men’s rankings, Team USA maintains two top fifty players with Todd Harrity and Shahjahan Khan at world No. 43 and world No. 45, respectively.
Faraz Khan advances five positions to a new career high world No. 57, while Timmy Brownell cracks the top 100 for the first time with a jump of twenty-three positions to world No. 81.
Wish all Mondays started off like this! Amazing feeling to make the jump to career high ranking of 🌎 No. 13 ! A lot of hard work ahead but proud of how far I’ve come!
