Saurav recovered to win the fourth comfortably and then kept that momentum in the fifth for upset win showing his first round win wasn't a fluke ...

Saurav continues with his recent terrific form as he reached into the third round of the Worlds ... Saurav got lucky break in the first round as former WR #1 James Willstrop retired after losing the first game ... Saurav comfortably won the second round beating Britisher Ben Coleman ... In the third round, he will faced a tough match against 2nd seed Karim Abdel Gawad.

At $325K Men's AJ Bell PSA World Championship 2017, Manchester, England

Good run by Saurav! I wonder if making the QF will push him to a PB (not sure how the squash ranking system works).

I feel, he will be pushed his ranking to his PB or maybe one place above. This Worlds is his 11th tournament of the year ... Also attaching current squash ranking system.
PSA Ranking Points
PSA World Ranking points are earned based on the standing of a tournament. Tournament categories are determined by the amount of prize money (total compensation). Players automatically receive ranking points appropriate to their final placing in a tournament.

PSA World Rankings
PSA players competing in PSA World Tour tournaments earn points based their final position in the event according to the schedule below. The total number of points a player accumulates in any 12 month period is divided by the number of tournaments played to give an average score (the minimum number of tournaments used is currently 10 tournaments for men and 8 for women).

This average score is used to place a player in the PSA World Rankings. Until a player plays 10 tournaments (men) or 8 tournaments (women), their total points’ accumulation will be divided by this minimum divisor (10 for men, 8 for women) and after that, it will be determined by the formulae below:

For example, a player who has competed in 13 tournaments will have selected their best 10 scores which will be accumulated and divided by 10 to give the player’s average.

PSA World Rankings are calculated and published on the first day of each month.
