New Zealand's top squash player Joelle King is up one spot to No.4 in the latest world rankings.

It is a career high for King and she becomes the highest ranked New Zealander for more than 10 years.

Malaysian Nicol David, who missed out on a record eighth World title last month, extends to 93 months her unbroken reign as world number one since August 2006.

England's Laura Massaro, who beat David to become England's first world champion for 15 years, has edged closer to the Malaysian to begin a second year as world number two.
