With New Zealand’s
Carol Owens easily retaining her No1 position in the new September Women’s
World Squash Rankings, announced August 29th by the Women’s International
Squash Players’ Association (WISPA), England’s Cassie Jackman created
most of the news by rising three places to six to become the second-highest
English woman in the new list.

Jackman, the 30-year-old
former world champion from Norfolk, clinched her fourth WISPA World Tour
title this year when she won the Mulpha-Head Malaysian Open this month
in her fourth appearance in the final. The former world No1 is fighting
back to the top of her game since undergoing back surgery for the second
time in her career less than a year ago.

Jackman’s rise will ensure a top-eight seeding for the
next major event for which this ranking list will provide the seedings
– the British Open in Nottingham, in the first week of October.

The top five behind Owens remains unchanged, with USA’s
Natalie Grainger (who has reverted to her maiden name after separating
from her husband) at two, and Australia’s Rachael Grinham, England’s Linda
Charman and seven-times Dutch champion Vanessa Atkinson occupying the
positions three, four and five, respectively.

While England’s former European Junior Champion Jenny
Duncalf moves up to a career-high 22 in the September rankings, the biggest
jump in the list is achieved by Malaysia’s Nicol David who provided the
best possible celebration of her 20th birthday this week by reaching the
final of the Malaysian Open. A qualifier, David defeated three players
in the world top twenty to become the first local player to reach the
event’s climax – and is rewarded by a 15-place leap to No24.
