Virtually
Unchanged Top 20 For November

There were few
players switching positions within the top twenty, Australia’s Natalie
Grinham slipped to the world No5 ranking, while Natale Grainger moved
up to #4. Fast charging Samantha Teran climbed from 73rd to 59th, while
American star Lily Lorentzen moved from 94 to 77, moving well ahead of
American Louisa Hall in the rankings.

Australia’s Rachael Grinham moves into her fourth month
at the top of the Women’s World Squash Rankings, according to the new
November list announced at the beginning of the month by the Women’s International
Squash Players’ Association (WISPA).

Grinham maintains her lead ahead of England’s world No2
Cassie Jackman and Vanessa Atkinson, the No3 from the Netherlands.

Rachael’s sister Natalie Grinham slips to five, while
USA’s Natalie Grainger rises one place to number four.

Malaysia’s former twice world junior champion Nicol David
celebrates a career-high No7 position in the new list, following quarter-final
berths in the last three events in which she has played.

New Zealand’s Shelley Kitchen, a semi-finalist in October’s
Monte Carlo Classic, has also attained a best-ever ranking in the new
list – moving up one place to a career-high No13.
