Castagnet Claims Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open Title

France’s World No.28 Mathieu Castagnet claimed his first title since the 2016 Canary Wharf Classic at the Wimbledon Club Squash Squared Open as the fifth seed made it two final defeats in a row for England’s World No.34 Tom Richards.

Castagnet – who defeat Ben Coleman, Youssef Soliman and James Willstrop en route to the final – took control of the opening game to take an important lead.

The second game was a much closer affair with Richards – who was beaten in the final last year by Alan Clyne – executing his shots better, however, the Frenchman was able to get the better of his English opponent in a close ending and then recovered from an early 5-0 deficit to take the third and complete a straight-games victory by an 11-6, 11-9, 11-6 scoreline.
