Nigeria’s Aruna Quadri has displaced Egypt’s Omar Assar as the best ranked African player in the world following the release of the July 2018 ITTF World Ranking.

The ranking which was released on Monday by the world table tennis ruling body has Quadri jumping two steps up to 20 rated players in the world.

The Nigerian was ranked 22 in June, but he has overtaken Assar with just one point, as the Egyptian dropped from 17 to 21. With 10234 points, Quadri took over from Assar who has 10233 points in the latest ranking.

For the second time this year, Quadri will be breaking into the top 20 in the world as he made the same spot in January 2018 – and the first Nigerian to achieve that.

For the first time in his career, China’s Fan Zhendong retained the number one spot in the world ranking for the fourth consecutive month.

However, for his compatriot Ma Long, the reigning Olympic and World champion, it is a very different story; he drops from no.2 to no.6 and occupies what is for him most unusual position.

He is the fourth highest ranked player from the People’s Republic of China.
