JOYCE CELEBRATES 10th MONTH AS WORLD No1
New Zealand’s Leilani Joyce celebrates her tenth month as world No. 1
in the new August Women’s World Rankings announced today (2nd August)
by the Women’s International Squash Players’ Association (WISPA).

FITZ IS HOTTEST PLAYER ON TOUR
Sarah Fitz-Gerald, the tour’s hottest player, although winner of all six
events she has entered in 2001 remains at 3. Joyce has only entered two
ranking events in 2001, losing in both cases to eventual winner Fitz-Gerald.

The July list marks the appearance
of a new name at No5 — England’s US-based Natalie Grainger married in
June, in her former hometown of Johannesburg in South Africa, will from
henceforth be known as Natalie Pohrer.

Fitz-Gerald continues her campaign
to regain the world championship with the appearance at the Australian
Open in mid August.

The WISPA World Tour continues with
a vengeance later this month in the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open, from
21-26 August, when all the world’s top players – led by Joyce, Owens and
Fitz-Gerald – will be vying for positions in the September world rankings.

BELOW THE TOP TWENTY
Below the top 20, Omneya Abdel Kawy, finalist in the recently concluded
World Junior Women’s event, moved up to 24th in the world while the American
sisters, Latasha and Shabana Khan both moved up to 26th and 35th respectively.
