APRIL - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Massaro wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Laura Massaro has been named Squash Player’s Female Player of the Month for April after becoming the first Englishwoman since 1951 to win the prestigious Allam British Open title twice.

Massaro, the 2013 champion, overcame England team-mate Sarah-Jane Perry 11-8, 11-8, 6-11, 11-6 in the first all-English British Open women’s final since Lisa Opie and Sue Wright met in the 1991 decider.

“It’s just unbelievable,” said Massaro, who climbs from fifth to second in the April world rankings as a result of her first PSA Tour title since last October.

“When I won the British Open for the first time, I was so happy. There was a little bit more pressure coming into today, as I beat Nicol [David], who was world no.1, for my first title and at the time there was absolutely no pressure on me.

“I’m proud of myself for the week and for bouncing back, because this has probably not been my best season.

“I’m just happy I managed to tough it out in the end and keep getting balls back, and it paid off. It’s a little bit different, because the first one was so special."
