    Edit - Please read comments below as it appears that Nick may not have been wearing the Infinity Flare but an older model that was altered to have the same colour scheme.

    The Qatar Classic 2013 Championship just finished and what a tournament it was. There were a number of unexpected upsets. Daryl Selby took out James Willstrop, Borja Golan elminated Gregory Gaultier and Mohamed Elshorbagy beat Karim Darwish. That left us with a Nick Matthew vs Mohamed Elshorbaby final. What a final it was. A massive battle between two tremendous players. Shorbagy came through and won his first World Series event with a hard fought 5-game victory.

    This year’s tournament is proving to be very entertaining.  The round of 16 has just finished and there has already been a few terrific matches.  The match between Simon Rosner and Omar Mosaad in particular was really entertaining yesterday and was really fun to watch.  The momentum swings were incredible as was the pace of the ball.  I could not believe how hard Mosaad was hitting.  The commentary on @_SquashTV about how hard they were hitting and how loud it was at the venue was hilarious.  The other match that was fantastic was the Tarek Momen versus Chris Gordon match.  Twitter was absolutely abuzz with conversation about this match and Gordon's terrific effort in this match.

    Nick Matthew - High 'T' Position

    Feb 13, 2011 8:43:54 AM / by Jeff Warren posted in Squash Tips, Squash Training, James Willstrop, nick matthew, Control the 'T', High 'T', tactics


    I am watching a replay of the PSA World Open 2010 final between James Willstrop and Nick Matthew on PSA Squash TV and impressed with Nick Matthew's position on the 'T'. He is playing such a high 'T' position and putting so much pressure on James. Willstrop won the first game with some absolutely astounding accurancy but had to work so hard to do it. The second game was close to about 5 but after that Nick opened up a huge lead mostly because of the work James has had to do to that point.

    Aug 30, 2010 1:54:02 PM / by Jeff Warren posted in nick matthew, Dunlop Aerogel 4D Evolution 120, Dunlop Aerogel 4D Max, PSA, Ramy Ashour


    This squash season is off to a very exciting start!  The first tournament of the season saw Nick Matthew win the tournament in a commanding fashion.  The second tournament saw Ramy Ashour win in a great final against Gauthier and retake the #1 ranking!

    These two definitely seemed to be at a different level currently than the other players in the field.  It is going to be a great battle throughout this season for the #1 spot in the world.

    Squash Training - An Interview with Nick Matthew

    I was logged in to my Twitter account and found a post this morning from SquashSite about training featuring Nick Matthew.  Below is the article, the author and original source.

    How many hours do you spend training a week?

    About four hours a day, six days a week. This has altered over the years: I think when you're younger you do a few stupid things which, these days, the body wouldn't be able to cope with. Training smart not hard, with lots of recovery work and non-impact sessions such as getting in the pool if there's little time between tournaments – this is my principle now. But I always have just the one day off a week. Possibly another half day depending on the schedule.

    Are you on court every training day?

    It's pre-season now, so I'm not doing as much as I would be during the season, when I'll be on court at least five days a week. Sometimes twice a day when I really want to sharpen things up. And that time will vary between drills with my coach, drills with a partner, solo practice – which is really important in squash – and match play.
