Peter Nicol and Chris Walker have moved to career-best positions of three and four respectively in the new world rankings. Nicol, the 23-year-old from Inverurie near Aberdeen, has reached three semi-finals since September, and the final of the US Open which he lost narrowly to world No 2 Rodney Eyles. The 29-year-old Walker is the highest-ranked Englishman on the list, produced by the Professional Association and still headed by Pakistan's Jansher Khan, as it has been since September 1993.
