Sarah-Jane Perry to play Nicol David for place in PSA World Series Finals semi-finals

Sarah-Jane Perry, represented by internationalSPORTgroup, was unable to repeat her heroics of the opening day of the PSA Dubai World Series Finals and prevent compatriot and defending champion Laura Massaro being the first player to qualify for the semi-finals of the end of season finale - however victory today over Nicol David will ensure that she too will progress to the semi-finals.
 
A confident display from Massaro saw her follow up her opening day win over two-time winner Nicol David to take the opening game before overturning five game balls in the second to seal the victory by an 11-6, 14-12 score line.
 
"I’m really happy, maybe it’s better that I need to go in and get a result tomorrow," said Massaro.
 
"I’ll still want to win tomorrow regardless of whether I’m qualified or not. It’s great to know that I’m in the semi-finals, but there’s still a job to do tomorrow."
 
The World Series Finals brings together the top eight players on the Men’s and Women’s PSA Road to Dubai Standings who are then split into two groups of four, with matches played in a best-of-three games format.
 
Players then battle for points to qualify for the knockout semi-finals and beyond.
