In a historic all-UNSQUASHABLE showdown, former world number 1 and defending champion James Willstrop was up against young Englishman George Parker. George has had an incredible run earlier in the tournament, taking out Scottish number 1 Greg Lobban and joint-third seed Daryl Selby along the way.
The first two sets went in James’ favour, despite best efforts by George. However the tides turned in the third with the scores being neck-to-neck for most of the game, allowing George to reduce the deficit with a close 11-9 win. The final set had George starting off strong, flying to a 4-1 lead. However, James’ experience came into play, allowing him to claw back the points and gain the lead, closing out the match with a 3-1 win in 48 minutes.
