Laura Massaro kept alive her hopes of becoming the women’s British National Squash Champion, by upsetting Ireland’s 2nd seed Madeline Perry the semi-finals in Manchester. The 3rd seed, ranked 9 in the world, had a hard battle to repeat her victory over 2nd seed Perry, the world No7 (11-8, 12-14, 11-3, 11-9). Massaro will face England team-mate Jenny Duncalf (pi cri), the top seed. The two-time champion reached the final for the 4th time in 5 years after the swiftest win of the day – a 19-minute defeat of 7th seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter (pic le).
Massaro marches into Manchester final!
