Serme, Pallikal & Perry Rise In March Rankings
2 March 2015
While Malaysia's Nicol David extends her reign as the women's world number one, France's Camille Serme, India'sDipika Pallikal and England's Sarah-Jane Perry all celebrate upward movements in the March Women's World Squash Rankings published by the Women's Squash Association.
Serme, the seven-time French national champion from Creteil, rises a single place to No.6 after recording quarter-final berths in last month's Cleveland Classic in Ohio and January's Tournament of Champions in New York.
Pallikal enjoyed a fine February on the WSA World Tour in Canada - winning the Winnipeg Winter Club Open and reaching the final, against expectations, of the Granite Open in Toronto. The 23-year-old from Chennai moves up two places to No.11.
Perry, the surprise winner of the British National Championship title last month, maintained her successful run on the WSA Tour by taking the Granite Open crown - from the position of fourth seed. The 24-year-old from Kenilworth returns to a career-equalling-high world No.14.
Meanwhile Raneem El Welily (Egypt), Laura Massaro (England), Nour El Sherbini (Egypt) and Alison Waters(England) hold onto positions two to five, respectively, in the March WSA list.
