(MENAFN- The Peninsula) QNA

Doha: Qatar's squash national team player Abdulla Al Tamimi moved to 18th place in the global ranking - his best ever, according to the latest ranking of the Professional Squash Association (PSA) issued on Monday.

Al Tamimi became the first Qatari and Gulf player to reach this position, recording a new achievement in his career.

In November 2022, Al Tamimi was ranked 20th in the world rankings, but he managed to advance two places after a great performance during the last season after reaching the quarter-finals of the QTerminals Qatar Classic 2022, in addition to winning the Atlanta Championship 2022 (challenger category), and the Qatar Professional Championship (challenger category).

The Qatari player also performed excellently at the beginning of the current season by reaching the third round of the JP Morgan tournament held in New York, one of the strong tournaments on the PSA agenda.

In a statement today, Al Tamimi expressed his happiness saying it is the best way to start the new season, thanking those who supported him.

Al Tamimi turned professional in 2011. He claimed a place in the world's top 70 after two years and break into the world's top 40 for the first time in November 2016. Last year was a landmark for the national team player during which he stormed into the PSA's top 20.

A graduate of the Aspire Academy in 2012, Al Tamimi was one of the most important talents that the Academy was keen to support and develop to achieve good results in various international tournaments.
