Joelle still in world's top 104 Feb 2013
Despite a quiet month, Joelle King has held on to a spot in the top 10 in the latest world rankings.
New Zealand's Joelle King remains firmly entrenched in the world's top ten on the latest WSA world ranking list. Joelle is at number seven on the February list, down two places on last month. The 24-year-old Kiwi has yet to register any points in 2013, after taking January off.
However, Amanda Landers-Murphy is up one place to a career high 35 in the world, after qualifying for the main draw of the prestigious Tournament of Champions in New York last month. Landers-Murphy is now the second highest ranked Kiwi in the world, following the retirement of Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist Jaclyn Hawkes. The 30-year-old quit the tour and her role as WSA President in December, when she announced she was pregnant with her first child.
Kylie Lindsay is also in the top 40, down one place to number 36 this month, while Megan Craig is up one spot to 53.
The New Zealand men have also been on the improve this month.
Campbell Grayson has had a solid start to the year and has jumped 4 places to number 41 on the February list as a result. Martin Knight has not fared so well, slipping three places to number 46 but Evan Williams has continued his inexorable climb up the rankings, reaching a career high 81, up three on his previous best set last month.
Kashif Shuja's up one spot to 87 this month while Paul Coll is the big improver, climbing 13 places to a career best 103. Coll picked up his maiden title on the PSA World Tour last month when he won the Australia Day Challenge in Brisbane.
