JUNE - 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 June after her outstanding performance in winning the PSA World
Series Finals for the first time in May.
She did not lose a match in Dubai, claiming all three group matches, her
semi-final against world champion Nour El Sherbini and the final against
Raneem El Welily to land the biggest prize in the history of women’s
The 32-year-old world no.2 twice fought back from a game down to defeat
El Welily 3/2 in a dramatic 62-minute decider and so partially atone for
her loss in the World Championship final.
"It was really tough coming off the back of a loss at the World
Championship and it was a big effort to keep training after that,”
“I’m just so pleased that it’s paid off. You go through so much pain and
hard work as a squash player. Moments like this make it all worth it.
"I told myself it was the final match of the season and coming on for
that fifth game, I just told myself there was one game to go and I'm so
pleased to come through in the end.”
