After an absorbing 71 minutes of high quality
squash Chris Simpson overcame PSL team mate
Shaun Le Roux to win the inaugural FantasySquash
Game one saw Simpson come out the blocks the
quicker and having taken an early he pushed on
to 9/3. Le Roux tidied up his length and slowly
chipped away at the deficit to force a tiebreak,
however Simpson managed to find two fine winners
just in time to secure the game.
Le Roux got hot in the second and two good runs
of points eased him through in the shortest game
of the match.
The third game was by far the most level of the
match and ultimately it would prove crucial. Le
Roux forced his way into an early lead courtesy
of some winners and some uncharacteristic errors
from his opponent. Simpson though was able to
steady ship and having saved 2 games balls he
stole the game on his second, and like game one
courtesy of two exquisite winners.
Despite a sharp start to game four Le Roux was
unable to push on and Simpson, having draw level
from 1/5, romped through match ball. Two were
saved, however on the third a backhand volley
drop was just out of reach for Le Roux and it
was match and title to the Guernsey player.
Chris Simpson 3-1 Shaun Le Roux (12/10 5/11
13/11 11/7) 71 minutes
Fingers crossed we'll be back bigger next
