New Zealand squash player Paul Coll has broken into the top 10 of the world's squash rankings.
Greymouth-born Coll is the first male New Zealander since Ross Norman in 1995 to reach the top 10 of the sports world rankings.
The 25-year-old is currently competing in the China Open in Shanghai and has continued his good form defeating fourth seed Fares Dessouky (Egypt) 11-6 11-3 11-4 in 40 minutes.
He now plays Egyptian top seed Ali Farag for a spot in the final.
New Zealand's Joelle King is also playing in the China Open and has scored another big win defeating eight-time World Champion Nicol David (Malaysia) in a hard fought five-game victory.
The win comes a day after King upset 2016 tournament champion England's Laura Massaro.
"It's been a while since I've played as well as this so I'm trying to enjoy the moment - to beat two legends of the game back-to-back is a great achievement," said King.
"I had never beaten Nicol before and I was behind twice there. I'm pleased with the way I managed the mental side of the game and stayed tough in there and it's nice to finally get that win over her. "
