Qatar’s number one player Abdulla al-Tamimi has risen to 30th place in the latest Professional Squash Association rankings. Al-Tamimi had last reached this ranking last in 2018 - also his best since he began his professional career in 2011. Al-Tamimi was ranked 44th at the start of the new season but has made a steady climb since his comeback from injury.
“It is the best way to start the new season while restoring the highest ranking I’ve achieved in my professional career. I look forward to achieving more achievements during the rest of this season,” said the Qatari squash star. On the upcoming challenges, al-Tamimi said his focus is now on optimal preparation for the San Francisco Open to be held from September 30.
The player’s rise in stature comes after he made the quarter-finals of the ‘Platinum’ category QTerminals Qatar Classic 2022 in the first week of September.
Earlier, al-Tamimi won the Atlanta Championship 2022 (Challenger category), the Qatar Professional Championship (Challenger category), and was also crowned as the singles champion in the West Asian Championship 2022 in Iran.
A graduate from the Aspire Academy in 2012, al-Tamimi is also one of the top Red Bull athletes in Qatar.
