Cameron Pilley has been named Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month
for June after scoring a series of shock victories to reach the final of
the PSA World Series Finals in May.
The world no.14 marked his first appearance in the tournament by
upsetting fourth seed Omar Mosaad, sixth seed Simon Rosner and favourite
Although the 33-year-old lost 3/1 to second seed Greg Gaultier in the
final, it was a superb achievement, considering he only just qualified
for the event.
"I remember watching when (Anthony) Ricketts won in 2006 and thinking it
was just amazing to see a fellow Aussie win this tournament, so for me
to scrape into the top eight and be in the final is something I can be
really happy about,” Pilley said.
"I changed a few things in my game and training last year, and since
then, barring a few results, I've been very pleased with my form. I feel
like I'm playing the best squash of my career and physically I feel
“Mentally I'm still keen, which is a big thing when you've been on tour
as much as me.”
