Blatchford Reaches Career High Ranking of World No. 13

Blatchford recorded her first career U.S. Open main draw victory in October.

Team USA’s Olivia Blatchford moved up three places in November’s PSA Tour world rankings to a career-high world No. 13.

The twenty-four year old began her successful month of October by reaching her first career Oracle NetSuite Open quarterfinals in San Francisco.

The Wilton, Connecticut-native followed that up with her first career main draw victory at the U.S. Open presented by Macquarie Investment Management.

The 2017 U.S. champion’s previous career high ranking had been world No. 16 in October.

Blatchford is set to compete in two World Series events this month, first as the sixteen seed in the Cathay Pacific Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open, November 14-19, followed by the Saudi PSA Women’s Squash Masters, November 26-December 1.
