Hong Kong Open 2013

Lost last night in the semi-finals of the Hong Kong Open to Nicol David 3-1. We both played some really good squash and I really enjoyed the match! I had my chances being 1-0 up and had game ball in the 2nd. To have gone 2-0 up would have changed the match entirely but Nicol won the 2nd 13-11 so being 1-1 it was game on again.

I felt like I had played well all week and was really happy with my performance this week and especially the way I felt I really pushed Nicol. ¬†She played well as she always does and you don’t get any cheap points from her. Some rallies you feel you have to win it 2-3 times over to get the point, this is why she is such a great player. Every point has to be worked hard for.

It’s a month now before the next tournament in New York at the amazing grand central station. Can’t wait for this event and with a bit of rest over Christmas and some hard training I will be raring to go from where I have left of here!

Bring on 2014!
