British Grand Prix in Manchester 2011

Ramy Ashour must be pushing the World No.1 position again after an emphatic win over Nick Matthew in the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

Well I say emphatic, but Nick took the first game 1-11 so it was looking good for the Yorkshireman after just 8 minutes, but Ramy turned things on their head to take the 2nd game 11-3.

The 3rd game appears to be the crucial point for both players with the defending Champ (Ramy) going 5-0 up and then the World No.1 (Nick) getting back to 4-6. But it was Ramy who went on to win the game 11-7 and then finish things off 11-4 in 1 hour and 7 minutes; leaving Nick to comment “It doesn’t feel like I’m World No.1, he’s beaten me 3 times in a row. But I’ll go away and come back stronger….”

And do you know what? I bet he will be!  (click here for the draw)
