2010 Sky Squash Open in Cairo

Nick Matthews beat Karim Darwish to win the final of the $150K Sky Open in Cairo; and the points he gained from winning this tournament also meant that Nick made is to his first ever PSA World No.1 ranking in and his 2nd Super Series win in a row with the 3-1 victory over Karim in just over an hours squash.

Nick is the first Brit since 2004 to take the PSA top spot and an unbeaten 28 match run has got him to this highlight of his career. It’s a fabulous effort to break the domination of the Egyptians (and the French) and Nick paid tribute to his opponent by saying “I was inspired tonight by what Karim did in Saudi and that drove me to play as if my life was on it” which was a reference to when Karim Darwish got to World Number one spot before reaching the finals of the PSA Saudi International Tournament, but then went on to win it anyway.
