WSA World Rankings – July

SH6645Malaysia’s Squash Queen Nicol David is within touching distance of her 100th month at the top of the Women’s World Squash Rankings after establishing her 96th month in a row – and her 99th of all-time – in the July list published today by the WSA.

The 30-year-old from Penang, who first reached No1 in January 2006, maintains a healthy lead of more than 1,000 points ahead of England’s Laura Massaro, the reigning World Champion who is celebrating her 16th successive month as the world No2.

SH6641Egypt’s Raneem El Welily is in third place while New Zealander Joelle King is at No4.

The highest ranking to change in the new list is No40 – the new incumbent being Egypt’s Habiba Mohamed, the 15-year-old from Alexandria who in November became the youngest ever WSA World Tour title winner (at 14 years and 5 months) and last month won her third successive Tour final at the inaugural Paderborn Open in Germany.

  1. DAVID vs. MASSARO
    The above reports says, “The 30-year-old from Penang, who first reached No1 in January 2006, maintains a healthy lead of more than 1,000 points ahead of England’s Laura Massaro, the reigning World Champion who is celebrating her 16th successive month as the world No2.”
    Points average:
    DAVID 3533.75 – MASSARO 2379.00 = 1154.75
    Points total:
    DAVID 28279.00 – MASSARO 20221 = 8047.50

    David “maintains a healthy lead of more than 8,000 points ahead of” Massaro sounds more accurate and honest.

    • The words “points average” are missing in the report. It seems there is a difference between good and very good reporting.

  2. If I’m not mistaken, the rankings are determined by the points average and not the total points. So it would be more accurate to refer to the average since that is the determining factor which decides the rankings.
