February - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 


Rösner wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Simon Rösner follows up becoming the first German winner of a PSA World Series event by being named Squash Player’s February Men’s Player of the Month.

The 30-year-old was an overwhelming choice after defeating fifth seed Marwan ElShorbagy, top seed Gregory Gaultier and seventh seed Tarek Momen to win the $165,000 Tournament of Champions in New York in January.

“It’s a unbelievable feeling,” said Rösner after beating Egypt’s Momen 11-8, 11-9, 6-11,
11-5 in the 71-minute final under the chandeliers of Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall.
“That was the biggest match of my career and to win it is incredible. Coming here this week, I didn’t expect to win the championship, but this is what you work for every day.

“To play on this kind of stage is the reason you wake up, train hard, stay disciplined and go through all of that.

“For that to pay off, in New York, in Grand Central Terminal, with the Tournament of Champions title - it’s unbelievable."
