November - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Perry wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

England’s Sarah-Jane Perry has won Squash Player’s Women’s Player of the Month award after retaining her NetSuite Open title and reaching the final of the Carol Weymuller Open in the USA October.

The NetSuite success in San Francsico was the biggest of Perry’s career, as the value of the tournament had increased from $50,000 to $88,000 in 12 months and the fifth seed defeated world no.2 Raneem El Welily in the final.

The world no.8 then followed up that triumph by justifying her second seeding in New York before going down 3/1 to favourite Nour El Tayeb in the final.

“I’m speechless. She was making me work so hard and any time there was even a slight chance she was punishing me. I had to play as clever as I have ever done before and I was absolutely knackered in that fifth game but I just forced myself to keep pushing.

"I knew I was playing well and that I didn’t have to chance much tactically, I just had to execute.

“But even at 10-4 up she was coming back and she hit some fantastic shots to get it back to 10-7 so there was a lot of relief at the end alongside the elation.

“I dedicated the win here last year to my Nan (who passed away shortly before the event). My mum said she’s be looking down watching over me tonight as well so this one is defiantly for her again.”
