The 2013 US Open squash tournament was held in Philadelphia, a.k.a. my neck of the woods. I was lucky enough to check out the quarterfinals in person.
You can watch the matches on PSA Squash TV. Here’s the recap of the men’s finals, which Greg Gaultier won 3-0 over Nick Matthew. Gaultier frankly demolished Matthew in the final, which I can hardly believe, because I saw Nick play in person in the quarterfinal and he looked so incredibly sharp. It goes to show how well Gaultier is playing.
The on-court emcee in that video is Philly’s own Gilly Lane.
