Nick Matthew: On The Match

“I thought the good start in the final game was going to carry us through but you can second-guess every shot in doubles.

“In singles there is a planning structure where if something goes wrong it is easier to correct but in doubles there are so many variables and it is such a momentum game.

“We did ourselves proud, we put out game plan into practice but they pulled off two great shots to win.

“We never got more than a two point lead having gone 3-0 up so I guess if we would have had that cushion we may have got the win.”
