Well the British Open 2002 has concluded,
Peter Nicol and Sarah
Fitz-Gerald have taken the spoils in a fine and convincing fashion.
Time for them to reflect? No, no, no.
The difficult thing for them now (and
the runner’s up – John White and Tania Bailey) is to front up tomorrow morning
to play in the World Invitational Doubles competition. After the obvious climax
of a hard week for them, the prospect of no day off and launching straight
into another series of matches means there is little time to savour the moment.
An interesting picture I took yesterday
during Johnathan Power and John White’s match was through the front wall.
I just wanted to show you the position of the photographer trying to find
the best angle for his shot – no comfy chairs for him I am afraid, though
perhaps I’d suggest a thin mattress!

The Stadium has now been tried and tested
as a venue suitable for the Commonwealth Games in July, and what a prospect
that will be with only a couple of ommissions from the top 20 players in the
world. More great squash for the squashaholics out there.
