Rachael Rises In New World Rankings

While
New Zealand’s Carol Owens maintains her grip on the No1 position in the
new May Women’s World Squash Rankings, announced today (06 May) by the
Women’s International Squash Players’ Association (WISPA), Australian
Rachael Grinham jumps to a career-high No4.

Grinham
has collected three WISPA World Tour trophies over the past twelve months
– winning both last year’s Singapore Open and Credit Suisse Privilege
Open in Hong Kong against the seeding, and triumphing in the Vassar College
Open in the USA in February.

Ahead
of Grinham in the new list are USA’s Natalie Pohrer at No2 and
England’s Linda Charman at three.

There
is a small but significant change in the English hierarchy as Rebecca
Macree leaps two places to a career-best No7 to become England’s second
highest player in the list for the first time. A WISPA Tour player since
1987, Rebecca has reached three WISPA finals since last August and boasts
eight semi-final berths over the past year.

Cassie Jackman, the former world No1 who led England to
success in the
European Team Championships on Sunday – supported by Charman and Macree
– slips below Macree to No9.

Ireland’s
Madeline Perry, who was also in European Championships’ action last week,
moves up one place to a best ever world No19.
