Observer doesn't look hard enough

England's Vicky Botwright and Laura LengthornThe usually excellent Observer Sport Monthly published its "Women's Issue" on Sunday 6th May.

But where were the squash players?

The magazine featured women from many different sports - including minority sports - contrasting their fortunes and focussing on British talent.

While the badminton Olympic silver medallist Gail Emms and gymnast Beth Tweddle (amongst many others) both posed for a portrait, there was no word on women's squash (or the success of Britain's women in the professional game).

This is especially disappointing, given that, in the May 2007 rankings, there are 7 British women in the world top 20.

How many British sports can claim that?
