  • Biography

    Donna Urquhart joined the WSA World Tour back in June of 2005, and exactly a year later had jumped over 90 rankings places to occupy a top60 place.  Her first WSA titles came in Malaysia in 2007, as she won consecutive competitions, the NSC Super Satellite No3 and the NSC Satellite No6.  These victories at the end of the year boosted the Australian’s ranking further for the start of the new year as she began 2008 at No40 in the world. 

    A quiet 2008 saw Urquhart acclimatise herself to the higher echelons of the WSA World Tour, but began 2009 strongly, claiming her third title in the Australia Day Challenge in January, followed by winning the Top End Open and clinching the Australian National Championships.  She later reached the quarter-finals of the British Open as a qualifier and similarly, the second round of the Hong Kong Open. 

    Appearances in the Chennai and KL Open’s as a qualifier in 2010 continued to boost Urquhart’s ranking climb and brought her for the first time into the world’s top 20.  Winning the Buler Challenge Cup gave the Australian her fifth WSA World Tour title, and she added her sixth in April of 2011, claiming the Indian Challenger. 

    A steady player who regularly achieves the minimum expected of a player of her standing, Urquhart has well established herself as a dangerous contender, knocking on the door of the top10.  So far in 2012 she reached the quarter-finals of the Cleveland Classic as a qualifier, beating Kasey Brown, and was drawn to play Nicol David in round one of the CIMB Nicol David KL Open after making it through the qualifying rounds.  On home soil she made it to the quarters of the Australian Open after beating compatriot Rachael Grinham, before consolidating an excellent month by winning the Crocodile Challenge Cup at the end of August. 

    The Australian has seen mixed fortunes since then, reaching the first round of World Series events as a qualifier, but also falling short in the first rounds of smaller tournaments in which she was seeded. 

    So far in 2013, Urquhart has played to her seeding in both the Greenwhich Open and Cleveland Classic but a foot injury that required surgery kept out of the game for 3 months upon which she returned to competition at the Allam British Open, losing in the first round to Omneya Abdel Kawy and reaching the quarter final at the Buler Cup.
