Raneem El Welily (Egypt) - World #2
Raneem El Welily has emerged as one of the most skillful players on the PSA Women’s World Tour since she turned professional in 2002.
She lifted the World Junior Championship twice, in 2005 and 2007, but would have to wait until 2009 to lift her first senior Tour title when she triumphed at the Heliopolis Open in Egypt. That win helped catapult her into the world's top twenty. In 2011, Raneem won the Carol Weymuller Open. In 2014, she reached the final of the World Championship and in 2015 she won the Tournament of Champions, the Windy City Open and the Alexandria International. Raneem was also named PSA Women's Player of the Year and by the end of the year she became world #1. In 2016, she won the Windy City Open and once again in 2017.
