NOVEMBER - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH
Grayson wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month
Grayson has been named Squash Player’s Male Player of the Month for
November after winning the biggest title of his career in October at
the $17,000 Chicago Open.
The 30-year-old New Zealander collected his 11th PSA Tour trophy by
rallying from 2/0 down to upset top seed Greg Lobban in the final,
his third successive five-setter.
“I put the success in Chicago down firstly to just hanging in there
and fighting it out,” he said. “From the quarter-finals onwards I
was in positions where I was nearly finished, but managed to come
back and win.
“I also felt I had been playing well leading up to Chicago and was
due a tournament win. This is because of the hard work I had been
putting in with my coach. My girlfriend was with me for the week as
well and was great support.
“I would rank this as an important achievement in my career, because
I had only previously won one 15k tournament, but felt that the draw
in Chicago was much stronger and this was the biggest-sized
tournament I had won. Also, winning three 3/2 battles in a row was
good for my confidence.”
