Squash Player's Players of the Year Awards

Gaultier And Massaro Are Players Of Year

Gaultier And Massaro Are Players Of Year

World men's champion Greg Gaultier and world women's no.1 Laura Massaro are Squash Player's Players of the Year for 2015.

The two annual awards are announced in Issue 1 of the magazine, which comes out at the end of this week.

Gaultier was chosen after becoming the oldest first-time winner of the PSA Menís World Championship at the age of 32 in the USA in November.

After holding five match balls in the 2006 World Championship final and then suffering three more World Championship final defeats, many wondered whether this supremely-gifted player would ever win the big one.

However, following a 16-year career and with time possibly running out, Gaultier finally achieved his dream success in Seattle to become France's second world champion after Thierry Lincou.

Massaro was handed the womenís accolade after a sensational end to the year, in which she won the Macau and U.S. Opens as well as the Qatar Classic.

The English star, who had taken two months off earlier in the year to recharge her batteries, followed up by heading the womenís rankings for the first time in her career.
