Rachael
Grinham Stays at #1 For One Year

In
another inactive month for the top PSA players, Australia’s Rachael Grinham
celebrates her 12th consecutive month as world number one in the new July
Women’s World Squash Rankings, published today (30 June) by the Women’s
International Squash Players’ Association (WISPA).

Grinham,
28, from Toowoomba in Queensland, took over the top spot in August last
year after winning the Hurghada International in Egypt. The Cairo-based
Australian went on to capture her second British Open title in a row in
November – and this year, after securing the Qatar Airways Challenge trophy
in April, successfully defended her Hurghada International crown to claim
her 19th career WISPA World Tour title.

Grinham
maintains her slender lead over second-placed Vanessa Atkinson, the world
champion from the Netherlands, and Malaysia’s No3 Nicol David. Younger
sister Natalie Grinham holds onto fourth place, with USA’s Natalie Grainger
at five and England’s Linda Elriani at six.
