New Delhi, July 9: India's squash star Joshna Chinappa broke back into the top-10 of the PSA world rankings following 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 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.
Raneem had held the top spot for 19 months before announcing a sudden retirement last month.
India's top male player Saurav Ghosal remains 13th in the latest rankings.
The PSA tour is suspended until at least mid-August due to the coronavirus outbreak.-Agencies
