Peter Wins Barker Family Duel In Qatar

 

Qatar Men's World Open Squash Championship, Doha, Qatar

A family duel between two squash-playing brothers from Upminster in Essex took on added significance when England's Peter Barker beat his older brother Phillip Barker in a fight for a place in the qualifying finals of the Qatar Men's World Open Squash Championship in Doha, Qatar.

Phillip, 23, took time off from the international squash circuit to study for a Sports Science degree at the University of Wales in Cardiff, while Peter, 21, went full-time on leaving school and now boasts a world number 31 ranking - 32 places above his older brother.  

Cruelly drawn to meet other in the first qualifying round of the most important event on the PSA Tour, the pair forgot their family loyalties as each tried to outdo the other.  The result supported the ranking list as Peter prevailed 11-9 1-11 11-9 11-3.
