Riding on her yet another appearance in the finals of a WISPA tournament, India’s young woman squash sensation Dipika Pallikal has moved up to a career-high 14th place in the world rankings.

Pallikal, whose three WISPA titles last year saw her rise to the 15th spot in the world rankings, however, could not cling to her overall sixth title last month as she lost to Natalie Grinham of the Netherlands in the Tournament of Champions in New York.

Her appearance in the finals, though, helped her to jump a place higher in the latest rankings. The Chennai girl also became the first Indian to reach the quarterfinals of the World Squash Open while she also made it to the semifinals of Buler Challenge Cup in Hong Kong and in World Tour Des Pyramides Open in France.
