King slips one spot in latest world rankings5 Jun 2012
Mixed news for New Zealand's top squash stars with the release of the latest world rankings.
Joelle King remains the top ranked kiwi on the world stage but has dropped one place to 13 on the June list. King has had another good month, finishing runner-up in two WISPA World Tour events and making it through to the quarterfinals of the prestigious British Open. However she has slipped back due to the meteoric rise of Egypt's teenage sensation Nour El Sherbini, who has climbed eight places to number seven this month.
Fellow kiwi Jaclyn Hawkes has celebrated her marriage to England's Jonathan Kemp with an improvement to her ranking, climbing one spot to number 18 on the June list, while Kylie Lindsay is down one to number 48. Amanda Landers-Murphy remains just outside the world's top 50, holding steady at number 51.
Meanwhile, Martin Knight and Campbell Grayson have both dipped slightly on the men's PSA Tour rankings this month. Knight has slipped one spot to number 44 on the June list while Grayson is down two to number 53.
