Sarah Fitz-Gerald stands tall, even in a sport where Australia has had more than its share of champions. She was World Open Squash Champion five times between 1996 and 2002 and held the World No 1 ranking through 1996-7-8. After knee surgery in late 1998 and in 1999 she came back to reclaim the top ranking in 2001 and held that honour until she retired from the World Tour in 2003. She represented Australia 75 times, including a gold medal winning performance in the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
