NICK MATTHEW SIGNS TO DUNLOP

Matthew made an indelible mark on squash history in 2006 when he became the first English born British Open Champion for sixty-seven years to rounding off a sensational year which began with him being crowned British National Champion for the first time and also included him winning the British Grand Prix title.In 2007, the young Englishman consolidated his position as England's highest-ranked player by winning the US Open and leading England to victory in the Men’s World Team Championships, before sustaining a shoulder ligament tear which limited his participation in major events in 2008.
 
The former World No.5 has made an impressive start to the New Year by reaching the final of the JP Morgan Tournament of Champions in New York, the first major World Tour final of 2009, with wins over World Open Champion Ramy Ashour and James Willstrop.
 
Matthew, 28-year-old, will be using the new Dunlop Aerogel 4D Evolution 120 racket, a signature series frame, engineered with Aerogel and 4D braiding to deliver a perfect balance of power and control for unsurpassed playability.
 
Nick Matthew said: “It’s fantastic to be joining the world’s number one squash brand and becoming part of the Dunlop pro player team. Dunlop is renowned for producing great playing rackets and the new Aerogel 4D Evolution 120 is no exception. I am looking forward to even more success with Dunlop over the next four years.”
 
Dunlop’s Sponsorship Manager, Sunny Singh said: “Dunlop is very proud to have Nick representing the brand and looks forward to supporting Nick to more success in future. Nick is a fantastic ambassador for the sport and a role model for younger players developing their game. Dunlop is committed to support squash at all levels and with players of Nick's calibre continuing to endorse and enjoy the brand, Dunlop's position as the world's number one squash brand cannot be questioned."
