King claims career best ranking2 Nov 2012
Joelle King has rocketed into the world's top 10 in the latest WSA rankings.
The 24-year-old Kiwi has leapt seven places to a career best number five on the November list. King has had an outstanding month on court, reaching the semifinals of the US Open, followed by victory at the Macau Open and a runner up finish at the China Open in Shanghai.
Her previous high ranking of 10 was achieved in October last year.
Fellow Kiwi Jaclyn Hawkes remains steady at number 19 on this month's list, while Kylie Lindsay is up two places to a career best 34.
Amanda Landers-Murphy has also attained a new best, leaping four places to number 42.
It's a major boost for the New Zealand quartet who fly out next week to represent their country at the Women's World Team Squash Championships in France.
Meanwhile, Megan Craig remains just outside the world's top 50, climbing two places to a career best of number 51 in the world.
There is also plenty for the New Zealand men to celebrate with Martin Knight leaping six places to number 39 in the PSA rankings. He's just one shy of his career best of 38 set in January this year. Campbell Grayson's also on the climb, up five places to 45 this month while Kashif Shuja and Evan Williams are both up one place to 86 and 87 respectively.
