Tania Bailey Climbs to Eighth

Still unbeaten on the tour this year, Vanessa
Atkinson
celebrates her fourth successive month as number
one in the new July Women’s World Squash Rankings,
published today (Friday) by the Women’s International
Squash
Players’ Association
(WISPA)

The
Dutch star, from The Hague, has won three WISPA titles this
year – and next week heads a star-studded field at the Qatar
Airways Challenge
in
Hyderabad in
a bid to win her first trophy in
India. 

While
Malaysia’s World Open champion Nicol David holds
onto her position at No2, Australia’s
Grinham sisters swap the next two places for the second time in
two months – older sibling Rachael Grinham returning
to No3 and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Natalie
Grinham
slipping back to four. 

In
a relatively unchanged top twenty list, England’s Tania
Bailey
moves up to eight – her highest position
this year.
