- Updated: September 4, 2014
New national squash champion Shaun le Roux has leapt 10 places in the latest world rankings.
Le Roux surprised six-time winner and top-seeded Steve Coppinger in the August final at the Wanderers Club, Johannesburg.
That victory sees him moving up to 44th in the world, his personal best.
Following his Laser W Province PSA Open victory in May, Le Roux only lost one match in the Jarvis Interprovincial in July to Coppinger. After the national championships, Le Roux travelled to Hong Kong where he upset Finland’s Oli Tuominen, ranked 31st in the world .
Meanwhile, Coppinger who slipped two places to 23rd, still remains South Africa’s top ranked player. Thoboki Mohohlo (53rd), JP Brits (169th) and Christo Potgieter (195th) all remain in the top 200 placings.
2014 national women’s champion, Siyoli Waters is ranked 37th with Milnay Louw next best at 69th, and Cheyna Tucker at 73rd.
