I had a chat with Control the 'T' Founder the other day and we got into a chat about squash swings and how they've changed over the years, and, how certain players have adapted to the newer, faster game by altering their swings.
For those of you who are newer to the sport (or those of you who play with a different scoring system), most matches in modern squash are scored as; the first player to get 11 points wins the game, and the best out of five games wins (the first player to win three games).
I've had many ups and downs throughout my time playing squash. There have been numerous phases where I've not really wanted to train or play any form of competitive squash.
I'll have to apologise in advance as I'm a little over a week late with this, but on October 15th, French squash legend Gregory Gaultier announced his immediate retirement from professional squash.
Following some awesome results at the Egyptian Open, I thought it'd be a good idea to write a bit more about the up-and-coming Malaysian pro, Eain Yow Ng, in a more focused 'player profile' type blog post.
Cold squash courts are disliked by many and they're not particularly fun to play a match on. Some player's playing styles match perfectly to a cold dead court, but this isn't the case for most!
Everyone has a slightly different preference when it comes to court temperature, and finding a squash court that's the perfect temperature for you is pretty rare.
I remember the first time I really watched Youssef Ibrahim play in the 2020 PSA Qatar Classic in which he managed to beat 1 seed, Mohamed ElShorbagy, 3 games to 2.
