King Maintains Top Five Spot3 Sep 2013
Some good news for New Zealand Squash star Joelle King ahead of next week's CIMB Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur.
King has held steady at number five in the latest WSA World Squash Rankings, despite not having played on tour for nearly four months. The 24-year-old is seeded fifth in next week's $US50,000 event and is expected to meet English second seed Laura Massaro in the quarterfinals.
Fellow Kiwi Kylie Lindsay has also maintained her ranking at number 40, while Amanda Landers-Murphy moves up two to 39 and Megan Craig slips three places to 49.
Meanwhile, Campbell Grayson remains the top Kiwi in the men's PSA World Rankings, after another month at number 41 on the list. Not such good news for Martin Knight who has slipped outside the top 50, dropping five places to number 53 on the September rankings, while Paul Coll is down four to 99 and Evan Williams is down 12 to 102. Knight and Coll will be hoping to arrest the slide with top results at this weekend's Fitzherbert Rowe Lawyers New Zealand International Classic at SquashGym in Palmerston North.
