October - men's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Lee wins Squash Players Player of the Month award


Hong Kongs Max Lee has been named Player of the Month for October by the authoritative London-based Squash Player magazine after an impressive September.

The 27-year-old began the month by beating world no.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy in the first round of the $100,000 China Open and then finished it by winning the $50,000 Macau Open as fifth seed, defeating then world no.10 Tarek Momen en route to the biggest title of his career.

I never thought I could get this far, let alone win the tournament, said Lee after his Macau triumph. I was 2/0 down in the first round [against Pakistan qualifier Nasir Iqbal]!

Ive played in Macau so many times and never been this far. Its also the first time Ive gone far enough to play on this glass court, so Im very happy about it.

I came into this tournament with no real expectations. I just focused on my game and played my best. Its my first 50k win, so I hope this will carry me into the new season with more confidence and motivation.

Lees excellent form in September saw him jump five places in the October world rankings to a career-best 13th.
