Paul a dit sur Victor

“Very happy to get off in three. Victor is a very dangerous, up-and-coming player. I could have been better in certain areas. My cross-courts weren’t up to the standard I want them to be. I tried to play a fast pace, the ball was fast off the front wall so I think I was catching it a bit late, but happy to be off in three. He is a good player and you saw how much work he made me do.

“His accuracy to the front lifted, he was putting it in tight, holding well, solid technique all round. He can put the ball anywhere, nice trickle boasts up the front, nicks off his backhand. He is an all-round solid player.

Camille a dit:

“I was a bit nervous in the first game. We have known each other for a long time and I know she can beat anyone. She has come back from an injury, but I knew it would be a tricky match, so I am happy to come through in three.

“You get nervous because you want to do well, produce good squash. Obviously, there are some days you don’t play as well and you have to fight harder. You have other options than your skills. Even if it is our job, it is also our passion and we have to remember that!

“I will have a good chat with my staff, recover physically, stay in my room and perhaps watch the other matches.”
