SEPTEMBER - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH


King wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

New Zealander Joelle King has been nominated as Squash Player’s Women’s Player of the Month for September after an outstanding August.

Not only did the 28-year-old win two gold medals in the World Doubles Championships in Manchester, she then went on to knock out defending champion Laura Massaro in the first round of the China Open.

Of her triumphs with Amanda Landers-Murphy in the women’s doubles and Paul Coll in the mixed, she said: “What a week. So proud of my team. What great memories on and off the court.”

The former world no.4 followed those successes up by defeating third seed Massaro 11-0, 11-6, 7-11, 11-4 in Shanghai.

King said afterwards: “I felt good out there. Laura is no mug, so to come out and win in four is really positive. I was seeing the ball early from the first rally.

“I was just in front of her throughout that first game and to take it 11-0 was beyond expectation. It can be easy to drop concentration after that kind of score though, so I tried to stay calm and not get too excited.

“I put in a lot of work in the summer and if I can keep playing my game and produce more of the same, then who knows what will happen.”
