While Malaysia's Nicol David maintains her healthy lead at the top of an unchanged top five, France's Camille Serme moves up to No.6 in the May Women's World Squash Rankings published today by the Women's Squash Association.

David extends her unbroken reign as world number one to 106 months - ahead of second-placed Egyptian Raneem El Welily; English players Alison Waters and Laura Massaro, at three and four, respectively; and Egypt's Nour El Tayebat No.5.

Serme, winner of a seventh successive French National Championship title in February, can credit her May rankings rise to an unexpected semi-final berth in the Windy City Open in February in Chicago, where she was the WSA World Seriesevent's sixth seed.

Single-position rises see both Emma Beddoes and Nouran Gohar record career-best rankings. Beddoes, the third-highest-ranked English player on the list, moves up to No.13 after winning her 10th and biggest WSA Tour title at theEmerson RC Pro Series in St Louis, USA, in March.

Egyptian teenager Gohar rises to No.15. The 17-year-old from Cairo is the youngest player in the top 20.

An impressive five-place leap sees Salma Hany Ibrahim celebrate a career-high world No.19 ranking while extending to six the number of Egyptians in the world top 20. The 18-year-old from Alexandria already boasts three WSA World Tour titles from four final appearances.
