Nicol David Completes Full Year As World Number One

3 Jul 2007

Malaysia's Nicol David completes a full unbroken year as world number one, according to the new July Women's World Rankings published today by the Women's International Squash Players' Association (WISPA).

The 23-year-old from Penang first topped the list in January 2006, then began an uninterrupted year from August last year - since when she has won seven WISPA World Tour titles, including successful defences of her British Open and World Open crowns.

In an unchanged top twenty listing, Australia's Natalie Grinham is at No2, ahead of older sister Rachael Grinham at three, England's Tania Bailey at four, and USA's Natalie Grainger at number five.
