With her victory at the King of Rackets in Belgium, Chrissie Seehofer once again proved she is out on her own as the strongest player in the world and has cemented her position at the top of the Women’s Rankings.
Her compatriot from Austria Bettina Bugl has moved up to a career high no.3 and with Anastasiya Bruzgina from Belarus moving into the top ten for the first time, there is now a very international feel with 8 different nationalities represented in the top ten women players.
The Men’s Top Ten however consists of just 4 different nationalities: 4 Danes, 3 Austrians, 2 Brits and 1 Swiss. Having won two big tournaments, the German Open and the King of Rackets, Morten Jaksland goes back to no.2 and with news of another victory at the French Open this last weekend (which will only be added to the August rankings), Morten could soon be in a position to challenge Lukas Windischberger for the no.1 spot.
