Alister Walker Defeats Shaun le Roux In AJ Bell World Squash Championship 1st Round

“I’m delighted to get through,” said Walker. “It’s always tricky in the first round on the side courts, it’s always tricky to get through that stage and get to the last 16 and get to the glass, so one more match to go.

“It’s the second time we’ve played this season, and we’ve trained a lot together over the years so we know each other pretty well so it makes it one of those matches where we kind of know what each other are going to do and it’s kind of predictable so we tried to changed things in the match which probably isn’t a good idea but it was tricky and he played a lot of winners but I managed to be consistent and win the important rallies at the end.”
