On the strength of an extremely strong performance in
three successive USA tournaments, England’s Jenny Tranfield boosted her
position into the world top ten.

Cassie Jackman retains her No1 position in the new June
Women’s World Squash Rankings, announced today (03 June) by the Women’s
International Squash Players’ Association (WISPA), but was upstaged by
Tranfield who leapt seven places to No10.

In an unchanged top nine, Australia’s Rachael Grinham
holds onto the second place behind Jackman, with Dutch No1 Vanessa Atkinson
at three; USA’s Natalie Grainger at four; and Rachael’s younger sister
Natalie Grinham at five.

Tranfield crowned a sensational run on the WISPA World
Tour last month in the USA when she lifted her second title against the
odds in seven days. After upsetting three higher-ranked players en-route
to winning the Squashworks Open trophy in Salt Lake City, the 29-year-old
from Milton Keynes hit the jackpot in Las Vegas when she clinched the
‘Bright Lights’ Las Vegas Open trophy to claim the tenth, and biggest,
WISPA title of her career.

New Zealand’s
Shelley Kitchen, who maintains her 14th position in the list, was also
a WISPA title winner in May when she swept to victory in the Hyder Open
in New York, edging Tranfield in the final.

Lily Lorentzen,
the USA high school senior, moved for the first time into the world top
100.
