Nick Matthew wins British OpenNick Matthew displayed an effective all-round performance that helped him stay in the game. The 31-year-old Yorkshireman foresaw Ramy Ashour’s shot-making skills and tackled them effortlessly.

Matthew did that by keeping the ball tight from the start and trying to ensure he won the first game which, despite a deficit of 6-8, he narrowly did.

He was watched by Jahangir Khan, the ten times former British Open champion from Pakistan, who inspired Matthew to take up the sport.

“When I was a kid I went with my family to watch Jahangir at the British Open at Wembley,” he said. “Who would have thought that I would been able to win it myself, three times?”

“I need to be in a good state of mind to win,” Ashour had said before the final, and he never achieved that.

“I shall be 32 this summer and, who knows, I still feel good, but Ramy is going to have more of these days than I am,” said Matthew.

Marvelously played! What do you think about Nick Matthew performance?
