Triple Commonwealth Games silver medal-winning squash player Laura Massaro insists her self-belief is as strong as ever as she goes in search of the elusive number one spot.
Massaro twice missed out on gold at Glasgow 2014, losing her singles match to Malaysia’s Nicol David before her and partner Jenny Duncalf were edged out in the women’s doubles final.
She was the first English woman ever to hold the World and British Open titles when she won the 2013 events.
However, she was unable to defend her World title last month, losing out to fellow Team England player Alison Waters at the quarter-final stage.
Attention now focuses on the forthcoming World Series events, starting with the Tournament of Champions, which will be held in a glass court at New York’s iconic Grand Central Station.
Massaro’s first match takes place a week today and the 31-year-old, who also took doubles silver at Delhi 2010, insists there is still plenty left to achieve, including becoming world number one for the first time in her career.
"I believe in every training session that I can still challenge for the number one spot and win more titles," she told BBC Radio Jersey.
"I didn't manage to defend my World Open title in December so I'm looking really to try and do as well as I can in all the World Series events.
"There's a lot of targets to hit and as a competitor you want to try and win as many as you can, but to grab a handful would be amazing."
