Whilst Englishman Nick Matthew extends his reign at No.1 in the PSA Men’s World Rankings, it is France’s Thierry Lincou (pic ri) who grabs the headlines at 8th place in the August by celebrating his 10th full year in the world top ten! In September 2001 the 11-time French national champion leapt 12 places to No8, and has maintained this top ten status to date. “I am very proud of this longevity in the elite group of the PSA,” said the 35-year-old. “We all know how tough it is to break into the top 10 and it is even harder to stay,” added the world champion 2004 and former world number one. “I always had a good base of physical abilities,” said the winner of 22 PSA World Tour titles from 41 final appearances. Lincou joins Australian David Palmer (pic le) as the only player on the current Tour to have maintained a top ten presence for ten whole years.
