After winning a second consecutive PSA World Series title at the 2015 Qatar Classic in Doha last week, Chorley’s Laura Massaro has opened up a comfortable lead at the top of the Women’s PSA Road To Dubai standings

Massaro followed her triumph at the Delaware Investments US Open with a thrilling five-game win over Nour El Sherbini at the Khalifa Tennis and Squash Complex to earn maximum points and establish an early lead which sees her in pole position to qualify for the PSA Dubai World Series Finals next May.

She is more than 100 points clear of her nearest challenger, El Sherbin.

Come May 2016, only the top eight players on the standings will qualify for a coveted place at the PSA Dubai World Series Finals with every match in the PSA World Series vital in determining who gets a shot at one of the sport’s most prestigious titles.
