Nick Matthew After Revenge In ROWE British Squash Grand Prix In Manchester

The ROWE British Grand Prix – Manchester 2011, one of the nine PSA World Series championships in 2011, will take place at the National Squash Centre in Manchester from the 19th-25th September.
 
Matthew is expected to face Ramy Ashour, the World No.2 from Egypt and title-holder, in the event's final on the spectacular ASB all-glass showcourt in Manchester.
 
After twice leading his Egyptian rival in last week's final of the Australian Open, the third PSA World Series event of the year, Matthew went down in five games in his first loss to Ashour since January.
 
“I was disappointed with the fifth - it just ran away from me and sometimes he can get on a run of points in the blink of an eye and before I knew it he was five, six, seven, eight and I couldn’t stop the rot,” said the 31-year-old World Champion and double Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist.
 
"But I am looking forward to the chance of setting the record straight in Manchester," added Matthew. "It's one of my favourite venues in the world – the England team regularly train there and I have enjoyed a number of important title successes on that court.
 
"And the Manchester crowds are amongst the best in the world – and this will be a huge boost."
 
Matthew begins his 2011 ROWE British Grand Prix campaign against German wild card Jens Schoor. The top seed, England's first World No.1 for six years, will want to make up for the disappointment of being forced to withdraw from last year's championship after being taken ill on the eve of the event.
 
For the second year in a row, the ROWE British Grand Prix will be the biggest event to be held in the year in the UK.
