ITTF rankings: Aruna returns to Top 12

Nigerian Quadri Aruna gained two steps up the world ranking to occupy 12th place in the Men’s rating following the release of Week 14 of the ITTF Table Tennis World Rankings.

Being the first African to reach the Top 11 in the world, Aruna’s good run in Doha fetched him massive ranking points to rise from the 14th spot to 12 in the latest world rankings.

The Nigerian overtook China’s Wang Chuqin and Germany’s Patrick Franziska to be among the Top 12 players in the world.

Egyptian Omar Assar’s inactiveness may have caused his static in the ranking as the 2021 African champion remains world No.27, while his veteran countryman Ahmed Saleh also stayed put in the 49th spot.

Senegal’s Ibrahima Diaw occupies 57th place while Olajide Omotayo (Nigeria) dropped to 89 in the rankings.

In the women’s rankings, China’s Chen Meng remains the world’s best while Egypt’s Dina Meshref holds on tight to the top spot in Africa as the six-time African champion dropped to 40th in the latest ranking while her compatriot Yousra Helmy also dropped to 80th in the ranking.
