Tuesday 27th July                                            HALL OF FAME

MEN'S FINAL
Jahangir Khan  bt Jansher Khan
   73% - 27% ( 348 - 127 )

Jahangir took an early lead, and never looked back as the WSF president secured his place as the winner of the SquashPlayer Summer 'Greatest Player of All Time" ... well, until the next time!

WOMEN'S FINAL
Heather McKay bt Sarah Fitz-Gerald
   51% - 49% ( 175 - 169 )


It was a close-run thing, with McKay leading throughout the day's polling. She maintained a 10-15 vote lead throughout the day, but as the votes piled up the percentage narrowed.

VOTING UPDATE:  3rd July

Voting for the top eight has now closed, with a total 2,852 votes and suggestions. The men's field has a familiar look, perhaps weighted
a little towards the recent players, while the women's list shows a
distinct Antipodean leaning.

1 Jahangir Khan 36%   Sarah Fitz-Gerald 35%
2 Jonathon Power 18%   Heather McKay 18%
3 Jansher Khan 13%   Susan Devoy 18%

        Finnish champion, was unfortunately forced to withdraw due to injury.

Who are the greatest
players of all time ?
 

The debate has raged for decades, and there have been many polls allowing squash fans to cast their vote.

But now, thanks to an idea from Radio 5 Live's Wimbledon coverage, we have devised a format that allows you to really get involved and introduce a bit of life to the quiet summer period.

We're going to take eight of the best ever men, eight of the best ever women, and put them into two tournament draws.

Each Monday to Thursday one match will be put to the vote, as you get to decide who you think would win on the day. We'll be previewing each match, to give you an idea of the players' qualities.

After 14 matches we will have two champions, and the 'greatest of all time' will be crowned. Well, until next time, anyway ...
