DECEMBER - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

Rösner wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

German Simon Rösner is Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month for December after reaching his first PSA World Series semi-final at the Qatar Classic.

The unseeded 30-year-old upset world champion Karim Abdel Gawad in round two and sixth seed Marwan ElShorbagy before going out to eighth seed Tarek Momen in the last four.

“It’s definitely one of the biggest achievements of my career,” Rösner said. “I had been waiting so long for this win at the quarter-final stage of a World Series event. Making it this time meant a lot to me. It was a very special moment.

“I’ve had the chance a few times, but didn’t quite get that win against a top-four ranked player. I think it just clicked in my head, playing positively and with a lot of confidence. That’s what you need at this kind of level.”

The world no.12 from Paderborn now aims to regain his place in the top six, his highest ranking so far.
