Herts League debut

Luton and Dunstable Squash Clubs under-15 members made their debut in Herts League. They had a double header against Berkhamsted and Radlett. The team was made up of Callum McGeorge, Alex Axford and Rahul Sheemar as they won.

No 1 string fourteen year old Axford was the days star, winning both of his matches 3 – 0. His last game against top string from Radlett was mainly impressive as this was the only match their team got defeated in the day. 2nd string, 12 year old Rahul Sheemer also handed an excellent account, even though lost his 1st game 3 – 0 to Radletts 2nd string, in spite of each match being close. In his 2nd game, Sheemar also played quite well against the 2nd string from Berkhamsted as well as comfortably won 3 – 0.

Eleven year old Callum McGeorge, the 3rd string, also had a very impressive day. He lost his 1st game comprehensively 3 -0 against a strong opposition from Radlett, but this is more than made up in his 2nd match against Berkhamsted counterpart, snatching the match 3 – 0.

Danny McGeorge stated that considering that this was the very 1st time when the team is playing in the league, they did well, mainly as most of their players still qualify for the under 13 level squash.

Nick Matthew wins world final

Nick Matthew of England won his 3rd world squash title in 4 years along with a win against Gregory Gaultier, French 2nd seen, in Manchester. Thirty three years old Nick played excellently to win 11 – 9, 11 – 9, 11 – 13, 7 – 11, 11 – 2 in front of his home spectators.

Gregory had the impulse after clawing back a 2 match deficit, but Nick proved quite the stronger in the decider. The Yorkshireman told that it was difficult; it was such a mental pressure. What people do not see is that mental torment, that mental chess. There is no place to breathe or to move. This is a huge mental battle. He required a month off following that. Now he could gladly retire, but he won’t.

Thirty year old Gregory ended as runner up for the 4th time in his playing career, in spite of having appeared like a player who could beat his opponent this time. The Frenchman, who defeated Nick comprehensively to became victorious at the United States Open previous month, had spoke about how calmer he felt on the court.

Nick told that the 4th game went like a blur. He was having nightmares there for a moment. It took a whole lot of mental strength to return and begin the 5th game well.

Gaultier stated that he had been struggling with cramp near the end of the match. He added that Nick played well; he did his job.
