Nicolette Fernandes has made a slight drop in the world ranking of the Women’s International Squash Players Association (WISPA), following the release of the March rankings.
The England-based Guyanese is now rated at number 25, a drop of one spot on her February ranking. Fernandes’ first round exit in the ongoing Windy City Open in Chicago, United States of America, may been the factor responsible for her minor slip in the latest WISPA release.
Just a few days ago, Fernandes lost in straights to England’s Jenny Duncalf in the opening round of the competition. Duncalf won 12-10, 11-7, 11-5. Duncalf was seeded 13th in the competition, while Fernandes was unseeded.
Prior to the defeat, Fernandes had finished runner-up in both the Granite Open and the Winnipeg Winter Club Open on the PSA Tour in January. Fernandes’ career-best world ranking is 19, first achieved in October 2013.
