“He’s a very tricky player,”

“Very attacking and you never know what to expect with him. He could hit five ridiculous winners or five in the tin as well, so I had to stay focused, even if I lost a few points in a row because it’s very hard to keep that up for a long time. I managed well to keep the ball away from the middle and I’m really pleased to be through in three games.

“It’s been a good season so far. There have been a few matches, so it means that my body is fine and my mind is good. My squash is good and it’s been an ok start to the season, but there is more to come.

“Growing up it is always the picture you show people that don’t know squash and you say that’s where the squash is being played. I’ve always wanted to play on there, I have one more step and hopefully I win tomorrow, it will be a brutal match, but the winner of us will get to play on the glass court and I think that is an extra bit of motivation.”
