R1: SJ Perry 3/0 Jemyca

[7] Sarah-Jane Perry (ENG) 3-0 [L] Jemyca Aribado (PHI) 11-5, 11-8, 11-6 (25m)

“It’s amazing to see different countries coming into the sport and giving squash a go,”
“It’s always interesting to play different players, it makes it a bit different and that’s something that’s special about the World Championships. There’s always that extra group of players that you’re not necessarily that familiar with. Although I’d seen her name on the Challenger Tour, I hadn’t actually seen her play before, which isn’t common.

“I’m always expecting the unexpected from Rachael [Grinham], she’s a class player that has proven that over the years and is still playing some amazing squash and she always makes it awkward for whoever she’s playing against with her racket control and imagination. Hopefully, it will be a good match and I’m looking forward to it.

“I’ve got really good memories here, I beat Nicol [David] and I beat Camille [Serme], so obviously I quite like it here and enjoy playing here, but I’m just focusing on my match tomorrow and I would absolutely love to be able to play on the glass court in front of the Pyramids.”
