September - Women's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

King wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award


New Zealander Joelle King has been named Player of the Month for September by the authoritative London-based Squash Player magazine after winning her first PSA Tour title in over 18 months in August.

The 26-year-old continued her successful comeback from a serious Achilles injury by claiming the Australian Open in Melbourne, where she was seeded second and beat favourite Annie Au, of Hong Kong, 3/0 in the final.

"As soon as I finished the match, I got quite emotional," said the former world no.4 afterwards. "You just remember all the work you've done leading up to that moment. It's been a long ride."

King is setting her sights on climbing back up the world rankings, after slipping to 57 since her injury exactly a year ago.
"Definitely, there's no reason why not," she said. "Anything is possible, especially when I think back to where I was eight or nine months ago, and where I am now.

"I think there's still a lot of room for improvement. I'm still not exactly where I want to be - so look out top 10!"
