British Open Squash 2013 Equipment Review (Women)

laura-massaro

In the 2013 British Open, Laura Massaro stunned Nicol David in the final on the way to becoming the first British woman in 22 years to win the title. Massaro actually has a two-match winning streak going against David, having also beat her recently in the KL Open. The last time person to have a two-match winning streak against Nicol David was Jenny Duncalf, in 2009.

Thanks to Steve Cubbins for taking these pictures, and to Richard Majlinder, Howard Harding, and Dave Rosen for the tips.

Now, without further ado, here is almost all the equipment from the 2013 Women’s British Open. If you can answer any of the questions or notice anything wrong, please let us know in the comments!
