Australia’s 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 Mohamed Elshorbagy.

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 good.

“Mentally I'm still keen, which is a big thing when you've been on tour as much as me.”
