Camilleri breaks into top 30

North Queensland’s Lisa Camilleri achieved a career milestone when she broke into the world’s top 30 on the latest rankings issued by the Women’s International Squash Players Association.

Camilleri, winner of the ACT Open in late March, climbed three places to number 29 in the world, making it four Australians inside the top 30.

Rachael Grinham was the highest ranked Australian despite dropping one place to number four, while Kasey Brown was up one spot to six and Donna Urquhart remained steady at 16.

Malaysia’s Nicol David stayed at number one ahead of England’s Jenny Duncalf and Irishwoman Madeline Perry.

In the men’s Professional Squash Association rankings, veteran David Palmer showed he’s not finished at the elite level when he rose two places to be just outside the top 10 at number 11.

Brisbane’s Zac Alexander was up six places to a best ever 59, while Ryan Cuskelly reversed his dramatic fall from last month, jumping 11 positions to 40.

In an unchanged top 10, England’s Nick Matthew remained at number one ahead of Egyptian duo Ramy Ashour and Karim Darwish.
