Alison Waters has proved to be a fierce competitor since making her Tour debut back in 2000.
London-born Waters lifted her first Tour title at the Forbes Open in 2005 and since then she has been a prolific player at British events.
After finishing runner-up in the British National Squash Championships in 2005 and 2007, Waters went on to defeat Laura Massaro in the 2008 final.
Another runner-up finish came a year later and she also reached the same stage at the Malaysian Open which she lost to Nicol David.
She lifted another British National Championship crown in February 2010 with a defeat of Jenny Duncalf.
That year was a strong one for Waters who broke into the world's top three for the first time as she made the semi-final or better at every event she played.
An injury-ravaged 2011 followed but she stormed back in 2012 to win three Tour titles on the bounce, including a defeat of then-World No.4 Madeline Perry in the Irish Open final.
She reached the final of the KL Open in 2013 where she lost to Massaro in the final of the World Series event but she bounced back to lift the Carol Weymuller Open a year later. Waters reached the final of the 2015 Tournament of Champions but lost to Raneem El Welily.
The Englishwomen experienced mixed results throughout the rest of 2015, notably reaching the semi-final of the Macau Open in September where she lost to compatriot Laura Massaro.
After dropping out of the world’s top 10 for the first time since 2012 in February 2016, Waters spent much of the rest of the year fighting to restore her status as a top 10 player and also claimed runner-up finishes at the Cleveland Classic and Carol Weymuller Open.
Waters went on to make the semi-final of the Ciudad De Floridablanca in 2017, where she lost out over four games to eventual winner, Nicol David.
Waters reached the quarter finals of both the China Open and US Open in the latter part of 2017, before reaching the semi finals of the Cleveland Classic, where she was knocked out by Raneem El Welily.
She then finished runner-up in the British Nationals, losing to Tesni Evans in the final, before then narrowly missing out on a medal in the mixed doubles at the Commonwealth Games.
The early part of the 2018/19 season brought Waters some success, with a semi final appearance at the Carol Weymuller Open ahead of victory in the Wimbledon Cup in November.
The Englishwoman started 2019 well, as she reached the quarter finals of the Tournament of the Champions in New York, before then making it to the last four of the Cleveland Classic. Waters also made it to the last eight of the inaugural Manchester Open.
