Jaclyn Hawkes retires from squash

Former New Zealand women's squash No.1 Jaclyn Hawkes has retired from the sport at age 30.

English-based Hawkes quit the world tour and her role as the world Women's Squash Association (WSA) president last month when she announced she was pregnant with her first child.

Her last appearance in a nine-year career representing New Zealand was at the world women's team tournament in France in November.

Hawkes' world ranking had slipped to 19th, two years after reaching a career-high 12th.

The last of her three WSA titles was won in 2010. That year she also won a doubles gold medal with Joelle King at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.

King had overtaken Hawkes as the leading Kiwi, with the 24-year-old's ranking having slipped this month from fifth to seventh after taking January off.

New Zealand's No.2 is now Amanda Landers-Murphy, who is ranked 35th in the world.
