Laura rises to No.2 in the PSA World Rankings
Laura has moved back into the world’s top two for the first time since November 2016 after the PSA Women’s World Rankings for April were released on April 1.
Laura became the first Englishwoman since Janet Morgan in 1951 to lift the iconic Allam British Open title for a second time when she triumphed in an all-English final with Sarah-Jane Perry in Hull in March 2017.
That victory was enough to propel Laura to the World No.2 spot, one place behind World Champion Nour El Sherbini, who Laura beat in the semi-finals of the sport’s longest-running tournament.
Laura is also confirmed a spot in the prestigious PSA World Series Finals, reserved for the top 8 players in the world, which will take place in Dubai from 6-10 June.
