28 Oct. - Round 1 :


[2] Gregory Gaultier (Fra)
bt
[Q] Kristian Frost (Den)
11-7, 11-8, 11-6 (47m)

It was not the easiest of schedule, the last one to play, because I'm just back from the US, and at that time, last week, I was in bed! But you've got to adapt.

I'm moving OK, but I've got a few things I need to look at.

He played really well, he was very accurate, and that allowed me to get nice rallies and an excellent start in the tournament.


29 Oct. - Round 2 :

[2] Gregory Gaultier (Fra)
bt
Matthew Karwalski (Aus)
11-9, 11-3, 11-5 (32m)


Greg tinned a bit but still...


 Greg made a few uncharacteristic error in the first (4), but it's probably all credit to young Karwalki that got off the blocks really well, played fast and furious, preventing the Frenchman to settle nicely in the match. The Australian led 3/1 5/3, but was caught out at 7/7. But Matthew didn't die gracefully, pushed it to 9/9, Greg killed a nice crosscourt to get to game ball, and pushed the Australian to error, 11/9 in 12m.
 
 The second, well, Greg was wide awake, and only took 5m to make it 11/3. The third was more disputed, with Matthew making the tin at the crucial times, and Greg moving particularly well I thought....

Greg (quote tournament office)
“I’m happy with the way I’m playing, there are a few little things I need to improve on my game but I played a lot of tournaments and I tried to recover from last week and I’m confident that you need to improve your game every match.

Matthew played really well today, especially the first game, he was really sharp, playing fast and going for his shots, really impressive so I was very happy to sneak that first game and then after I was more comfortable on the court and I managed to raise a bit my pace because I was really a bit slow at the beginning and not able to to react to what he was doing but I needed to activate my vision and to react faster and play a bit faster from the second game.

Second match you feel more comfortable on the court, first match you are not used to the court, well you practice, but a match is different, with referees, with the crowd, with tension as well, the more you play on the court the better it is.”

Matthew
I don't have much experience on the glasscourt, after the first game where I took the ball very early, and upped the pace, I was able to surprise him a bit. But once he got used to my game, I could feel the pintch from not being able to get my length past him, I dropped off a little bit, and he was just all over me! That just shows why he is where he is ranking wise...

But overall, a good tournament for me...


30 Oct. - Round 3 :

[2] Gregory Gaultier (Fra)
bt
Tarek Momen (Egy)
11-5, 11-6, 11-6 (45m)

The last spot was claimed by three-time finalist Gregory Gaultier,
the in-form second seed despatching Tarek Momen in straight games.


01 Nov. -Quarters :

[2] Gregory Gaultier (Fra)
bt
[13] Daryl Selby (Eng)
11-7, 11-4, 12-10 (60m)

Gaultier denies Daryl

SP_2516In the second match Gregory Gaultier made sure that there was only one Englishman in the semi-finals as he beat Daryl Selby in straight games. The second-seeded Frenchman was in control for ther first two games despite late surges by Selby.

SP_2511Urged on by the crowd Selby opened up a 4-0 advantage in the third, and although Gaultier levelled at 6-all the Englishman had a chance to extend the match at 10-9. Three points in a row for Gaultier – ending in a stroke just as in the previous match – put an end to those hopes.

“I’m playing the best squash of my life, and I’ve been feeling really good in the last few tournaments,” said Gaultier, “I hope to be able to keep it going to the end.”


02 Nov. - Semis :

[2] Gregory Gaultier (Fra) 
bt
[6] Mohamed Elshorbagy (Egy)
6-11, 11-3, 11-8, 12-10 (78m)

 

Gaultier makes a fourth final

 

After s sluggish start which saw him make several errors and drop his first game in ten matches. France’s Gregory Gaultier took the initiative against young EgyptianMohamed El Shorbagy to take the next three game and reach his fourth World Championship final.

 

The second seed took the second quickly, the third less so, and had to fight back from 2-6 down in the fourth, finally taking the match 12-10 after 78 minutes. “Great!”, was his immediate comment.


03 Nov. - Final :

 [4] Nick Matthew (Eng)
bt
[2] Gregory Gaultier (Fra)

11-9, 11-9, 11-13, 7-11, 11-2 (111m)


I’m very disappointed to lose the first two games. I have a good lead in both, a three point cushion, I feel I made the wrong tactical choices at the crucial times. And from the end of the 4th, I started cramping in my quad. Fifth basically, I just couldn’t move anymore.

Of course, the fact he had a much shorter game yesterday plays a big part, and also the fact I had the worst schedule all week, playing the last matches every night around 11, meaning that with the adrenaline running and the recovery, I didn’t go to sleep before 3 every night, where he had much more recovery time… All that plays its part at the end…

Yes, I’ll keep trying to get the title, but yes, very disappointed, I really thought I was going to win this one. But Nick played well, he did his job.

Matthew makes it three in a thriller !
 
 England’ Nick Matthew became World Squash Champion for the third time in front of a packed, noisy and ultimately exuberant crowd at the Manchester Central arena.
 
 Champion in 2010 and 2011, Matthew was up against France’s second seed Gregory Gaultier, who he had beaten in the 2011 final in Rotterdam – Gaultier’s third time as runner-up in the sport’s top event – but Gaultier had won convincingly when they met last month in the U.S. Open final.
 
 Gaultier went 3-0 up in each of the first two games, but Matthew pulled back to take them both 11-9. The Englishman led 7-3 in the third too, but Gaultier fought back this time to earn three games balls at 10-7.
 
 Matthew saved them all, got himself a match-ball at 11-10 but Gaultier took it 13-11 to extend the match.
 
 The Frenchman was playing sublimely as he took the fourth 11-7 to force a decider, but Matthew quickly opened up a lead in the fifth as Gaultier just ran out of gas.
 
 The end came quickly, just 7 minutes for the last game out of the 111-minute total, and Matthew was flat on his back celebrating a third world title.
 
 “I’ll keep trying to get the title, but yes, very disappointed,” said Gaultier, ” I really thought I was going to win this one. But Nick played well, he did his job.
 
 Matthew was obviously ecstatic: “In my wildest dreams, I would have never thought I would get three world titles. I know that Greg is really feeling down right now, but he is younger than me, and he’ll have his chance…”
