Weaver Ascends to No. 4 in World Rankings

Team USA’s Olivia Weaver reached a career milestone of world No. 4 in the PSA World Tour rankings Monday, May 20, following the twenty-eight-year-old’s stellar run to the PSA World Championships semifinals last week in Egypt.

Weaver joins U.S. teammate Amanda Sobhy as the only U.S.-born players to have reached the world’s top four. Sobhy, who most recently held the world No. 4 ranking in December 2023, is the only U.S.-born player to have surged as high as world No. 3, which she held for three months in 2021.

Weaver has been in the best form of her career this season and in recent weeks, which has propelled her to new heights.

Last fall, Weaver reached the semifinals of the U.S. Open and earned two gold medals for Team USA at the Pan American Games. In February, Weaver won back-to-back PSA Silver titles in Detroit and Cincinnati–her biggest PSA titles to date and earning a new career high ranking of World No. 6.

Last month, Weaver reached her first career PSA Gold final at the Black Ball Open in Cairo. Weaver’s performance on the world’s biggest stage last week–the PSA World Championships–saw the American drop just one game on her way to reaching her maiden PSA World Championships semifinal. In the semis, Weaver pushed world No. 1 Nour El Sherbini to five games and fall just short of reaching the finals. Her world championships performance clinched qualification for the season-ending PSA World Tour Finals this June in Bellevue, Washington.
