NEWS BRIEF

MASSARO – MY STORY
Laura Massaro talks about what it has been like to become the first British woman to hold both the world and British Open titles at the same time in the latest edition of Squash Player magazine, which is out today.

In a wide-ranging interview by Richard Eaton, the 30-year-old Lancastrian explains how she has made history comparatively late in her career and who has helped her to her stunning double.

Massaro is of course one of the favourites for the Allam British Open and Issue 3 of Squash Player carries a comprehensive preview of the ‘Wimbledon of squash’, which starts on Monday in Hull.

Eaton asks if it could be the best British Open ever as he nominates seven possible challengers for the titles and British national champion Alison Waters writes exclusively what a first British Open title would mean to her.

There is also a detailed look at the forthcoming Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and squash’s journey in the multi-sport event.

Then in the Workshop section of the magazine, former world no.1 James Willstrop discusses tactics, practices and goals, and England high performance coach Lee Drew provides insights into key coaching issues in the sport.
