The Malaysian squash player Nicol David has marked another significant milestone in her illustrious career by celebrating her 58th month as world number one, equalling Australian Michelle Martin's status as the player with the second-longest world number one reign of all-time.

New Zealand's Susan Devoy has the record of 105 months in pole position between April 1984 and February 1993.

Joelle King is now New Zealand's top ranked player, up four places to 14, just ahead of Jaclyn Hawke.
