January - Men's PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

Pilley wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award


Australian Cameron Pilley has been named Male Player of the Month for January by the London-based Squash Player magazine after reaching his first PSA World Series final at the Hong Kong Open in December.

The 33-year-old outsider shocked fifth seed Simon Rosner, third seed Greg Gaultier and second seed Nick Matthew before having his giant-killing run ended by tournament favourite Mohamed Elshorbagy in the final.

Pilley, who is based in the Netherlands, regarded the $150,000 event as the best individual performance of his 14-year professional career.

“Hong Kong tops the list because of the quality of players I beat along the way to the final - world no.7 Simon Rosner, no.1 and current world champion Greg Gaultier and no.3 Nick Matthew - three days in succession,” he said.

“It is an achievement I am very proud of. It is also my first World Series final and I'll be looking to build on that over the next four months.”
