December - Men's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Gaultier wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award
France’s Greg Gaultier has been named Male Player of the Month for December by the London-based Squash Player magazine after becoming the oldest first-time winner of the PSA Men’s World Championship.

The 32-year-old atoned for defeat in four previous finals – in particular in 2006, when he squandered five match balls against Australian David Palmer – by overpowering Egyptian Omar Mosaad 3/0 in the final at Bellevue in the USA.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Gaultier, who will regain the world no.1 ranking in December. “There are no words that can describe this feeling.

“Since I was a kid, it was always my dream to win this tournament. Maybe in the past I put too much pressure on myself.

“I remember my first experience at 23 years old in front of the pyramids in Egypt. I had five match balls. My head was shaky and frozen.

“But you always learn from losses and it was an experience. I lost four times and I kept wondering if it was ever going to happen. I just kept on believing in myself and kept on working hard. I was always disciplined.”
