  • Biography

    A well-known name on the WSA World Tour, Rachael Grinham is a long-established figure at the top of the women’s game.  She won her first WSA World Tour title, the Toulouse open back in 1998, and has since gone on to add a further 31 titles to her haul. 

    Rachael spent exactly a decade inside the world’s Top10, falling out in September 2012 for the first time since August 2002.  She spent a 16-month stretch as world No1 during the 2004-2005 seasons and in 2007 she reached five consecutive WSA World Tour finals, claiming four of them.  The last of which was the holy grail of squash events, the World Open, in which she defeated her sister Natalie in Madrid, Spain.  She has won four out of five British Open finals and over the past ten years has won an average of 2.3 titles per year. 

    Rachael missed a portion of the 2010 season through injury, but managed to keep her spot in the top five, before slipping to six a the end of 2011.  Despite boasting an enviable array of accolades, the highly decorated and experienced player dropped out of the WSA Top10 for the first time in ten years in the September 2012 rankings, and consolidated her loss with a Malaysian Open first round defeat at the hand of Omneya Abdel Kawy. Further first round exits in the Carol Weymuller, US and China Open’s has seen the Australian’s ranking dip into the teens, but a quarter-final finish in the Hong Kong Open showed signs that Grinham can still compete at the top level. 

    2013 has shown Grinham’s resilience, after a semi-final finish at the Tournament of Champions, where she was beaten by younger sister Natalie, followed by a first round appearance in the Cleveland Classic. The next few tournaments have seen a mixed set of results for the former number one with a first round loss at the CIMB KL Open, second round finish at the Allam British Open, quarter final at the Texas Open and winning her 32nd title at the Victorian Open in July.
