HAPPY NEW YEAR

NEW WORLD RANKING

January 2010: World No.113

December 2009: World No.138
November 2009: World No.170
August 2009: World No.154
July 2009: World No.158
June 2009: World No.183
May 2009: World No.176
April 2009: World No.189
March 2009: World No.188
February 2009: World No.210
January 2009: World No.249

We can look back on the year 2009 and nod our heads in recognition that some measurable progress was made. I started the year as the World No.249 and ended as No.113. Fabulous!!

I had set goals to be in the Top 100 by June 2010, but it looks like I could get there sooner, provided i gain entry into the desired tournaments and God blesses me with top notch health. I guess there’s no better way than re-setting goals and objectives to start the year of 2010.

GOALS & OBJECTIVES

Short Term
– Top 100 by 31st March 2010
– Top 80 by 31st August 2010
– Top 60 by 31st December 2010

Long Term
– Top 50 by June 2011
– Top 20 by December 2012

NEXT UP: TOURNAMENTS

1) WISPA INDIAN CHALLENGER No.4 – Chennai
18th – 23rd January 2010

2) CHAIRMAN’S CUP – Hong Kong
26th – 30th January 2010

MAJOR EVENTS IN 2010

1) SA NATIONALS – Johannesburg, South Africa (July)
2) FOREXX WORLD OPEN – Amsterdam, Netherlands (September)
3) COMMONWEALTH GAMES – Delhi, India (October)
4) WORLD WOMEN’S TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP – New Zealand (November/December)

The plan is to continue to fight for a rise in my world ranking, which can allow me to get different draw into tournaments and direct entry into others. These major events are in the second half of the year – which gives time for preparation. A better ranking can mean I don’t get seeded against one of the top players in the first round (like I did in the World Games in Taipei in July – I played the World No.5) ! This may give me a chance to progress further into tournaments.

So, that means that I am really looking forward to the the Year 2010. You’ll notice that I haven’t mentioned anything about the FIFA World Cup Soccer in my country. Well…the world has already gone soccer mad. I’m hoping to join in some of the madness in June …and then play some serious squash after.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you ALL!!!
