September - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

Au wins Squash Playerís Player of the Month award

Hong Kongís Leo Au has won Squash Playerís Player of the Month for the first time after winning his maiden Asian Games gold medal.

The 28-year-old joint third seed defeated the top two seeds in Indonesia to deliver a first Asian Games menís singles triumph for his country.

First Au overcame Indian favourite Saurav Ghosal 3/2 in the semi-finals after trailing 2/0 and then he beat team-mate and second seed Max Lee 3/1 in the first all-Hong Kong menís final.

Lee held a career 10-7 head-to-head advantage over Au going into the match, but he had lost to the lower-ranked Au in the Hong Kong National Championship final in June, when the world no.19 retired at 2/2.

World no.21 Au carried on where he left off on home soil to defeat Lee 11-8, 12-10, 6-11, 11-4 in Jakarta.
