Daily Squash Report for linking to Steve Cubs’ video of James Willstrop and Nick Matthew at the 2013 British Nationals. Nick Matthew won the match in 3 to become 5-time British national champ.
It’s a rare treat to watch an extended squash video from the front wall like this. Enjoy:
Update: Steve also captured the epic fifth game of the finals between
Laura Massaro and Alison Waters, which Alison won to become 3-time British national champion:

He’s wearing his new
Hi-Tec Infinity Flare shoes. He actually started off the match wearing his old shoes, the Hi-Tec S701 4SYS. But after the first game he was treated for blisters on his feet, and when he came back on court he was wearing the Infinty Flares.
Here’s a photo of Nick Matthew visiting the kids from
StreetSquash. You may have seen the articles in the and the New Yorker , talking up his visit? Wall Street Journal

Most of the kids seem to be wearing the same pair of shoes. It looks like Prince, but I can’t tell which model it is.
If anyone knows the names of the kids in this photo please let me know and I will add them in!
Nick Matthew first reached #1 in the world rankings in June, 2010. He has won the World Open twice and the British Open three times. I think it’s about time I created a videos and links page for the man from Sheffield, no?
