While Australia’s Sarah Fitz-Gerald
has strengthened her position at No 1, England’s Cassie Campion has risen
to No 3 in the new June Women’s World Squash Rankings, announced today
(30th May) by the Women’s International Squash Players’ Association (WISPA).

Fitz-Gerald, the four-times world
champion from Melbourne, impressively swept to victory in the four WISPA
World Tour events in the USA this month. Her straight games victory over
New Zealand’s world No2 Carol Owens in last week’s Seattle Open final
brought Fitz-Gerald’s career total to 57 titles, equalling the record
of her now-retired compatriot Michelle Martin.

The in-form Australian, unbeaten
in 47 straight matches, will create a new record if she successfully defends
her Australian Open title in Adelaide at the end of June. Campion, the
1999 world champion from Norfolk, celebrated her 40th WISPA final appearance
at the Hurghada International in April, then reached the semi-finals of
the Seattle Open where she lost to Fitz-Gerald. The 29-year-old former
world No1 has replaced Leilani Joyce in the top three.

The fourth-placed New Zealander,
who has been out of action all this year following an Achilles rupture
in December, is expected to make her long-awaited comeback at the Commonwealth
Games in Manchester, England, in July. Denmark’s Ellen Petersen, runner-up
in the Odense Open in her home country in April, moves back into the top
twenty at 20.
