Lake 3-1 A. Salazar

Nathan Lake (ENG) 3-1 Arturo Salazar (MEX) 9-11, 11-0, 11-0, 11-1 (36m)


At the end of the first game, I had a sharp pain in my right shoulder, and I just couldn’t hit the ball from that point on…


After the first game that was very close, he called the physio. I stayed on it as much as I could as he is a very skilful player and I didn’t want him the chance to get into the match, as I would have been in trouble.

I kept my foot down as much as I could. We both knew it was a good draw, and a good opportunity to get to the 3rd round of a major, and to get the points going with it. Both of us thinking, ‘I can win this’….

Such a shame my next match is not at the Pyramids
