Peter Barker Defeats Ryan Cuskelly In AJ Bell World Squash Championship 1st Round

“I started pretty well,” said Barker. “To be honest I knew it was going to be a tough match. He’s had a few good results and he’s knocking on the door of top 20 so he’s fresh.  You just can’t take anyone for granted.  I’m good mates with him as well, we shared at the last tournament, the US Open so I was well aware of him.  He played really well in the second, I nearly got it back but then the third and fourth were good from my point of view.

“I had a really up and down year last year but I managed to stay in the top eight which was the bare minimum but hopefully I can push on this year.  I’ve had a couple of decent tournament wins but physically I feel good and just enjoying being able to run.”
