Squash – Early Racquet Preparation

I had a chance to discuss racquet preparation with the pro at my squash club today and we went over some things that I knew but were definitely good to have reinforced.

It also improves deception making it harder for your opponent to figure out what shot you are playing. Another benefit is it allows you to adjust quicker to a ball that takes an unexpected bounce.

Prince, Ramy’s sponsor must be really happy with their decision to sign Ramy Ashour.  Not only has he not lost a match since he switched back to them but he left court in the final game to get a new Prince Airstick 130 because the last one he grabbed after breaking a string did not have the logo stencilled on the strings!

Ramy Ashour is the 2013 Allam British Open Champion!

The main round of the 2013 Allam British Open Squash Championship is now under-way and Ramy Ashour is seeded to win.  There certainly is some very stiff competition he will have to beat though to win this year’s British Open.  Ramy has never won the British Open and if he does he will have gone a whole year without losing a match on the PSA tour.  The last tournament he lost was the British Open last year when Nick Matthew beat him.  Going a whole year without losing a match would be an incredible accomplishment especially considering how talented the current top 4 players are! Let’s take a look at Ramy’s career.
