Grainger Returns To World Top Five

Grainger has made a welcome return to form this year after a series of injury and illness layoffs. After becoming a US citizen in February, the 29-year-old former South African international won the Burning River Classic in Cleveland, then clinched her first US Nationals crown. Last month, the former world number one from Washington DC took the Texas Open title to secure the 13th WISPA World Tour title of her career.

Australia's Natalie Grinham remains at No2 in the new list, ahead of older sister Rachael Grinham at three, and England's Tania Bailey at four.

New Zealand's Jaclyn Hawkes celebrates her top twenty debut in the June rankings, rising a single place to No20. The 24-year-old from Auckland claimed two unexpected WISPA Tour final places this year, reaching the climax of the Dayton Open in the USA in January and the Irish Open in April. Last month, Hawkes was a semi-finalist in both the Texas Open and Subway Goshen Open in the USA>
