Preston-based world number two Laura Massaro defied the odds to beat favourite Malaysian Nicol David 3-1 (11/4, 3/11, 12/10, 11/7) in the most tensely contested match of the tournament.

An emotional Ramy Ashour became the first Egyptian winner of the British Open since 1966 after he claimed the title at BritishOpenWinners2013_41his second attempt.
