Weleily Makes Major Leap

Posted by

The WSA ranking in August features a major leap for young Egyptian, Raneem El Weleily, taking over the coveted No. 2 spot from Jenny Duncalf who has held on to it tightly for three years. 

Nicol David continues to dominate the top spot for the 73rd consecutive month.

While there wasn’t much movement amongst the other players, Natalie Grinham celebrates at No. 8, ahead of big sis Rachael Grinham leading the Australian pack with Kasey Brown at No. 10. 

Outside the top 10, Tournament of Pyramides finalists Low Wee Wern and Alison Waters are high jumpers this month, at No. 11 and No. 16 respectively. Alison’s good form that saw her winning the Atwater Cup, Granite Club Open and Irish Open are clear indicators that she is on the right track and is one to watch out for in the upcoming Australian Open. 

Egyptians are also making themselves noticed in the World Series Standings, with Nour El Sherbini tailing Nicol after a spectacular outing at the British Open in May. Annie Au and Raneem take 3rd and 4th place in a close competition that will be flung wide open as the second half of the World Series tour begins with the Malaysian Open in September.

While the squash fraternity watches the Olympics go by, all the preparations put in by the players now will spring into action soon so sit tight and enjoy the chain of tournaments ahead.
