At the end of another season, the PSA's Matt Coles has been talking to the stars of the PSA World Tour about their 2018/19 campaigns. Here he catches up with Germany’s Simon Rösner.
It was another good season for Simon Rösner, who achieved appearances in the finals of the U.S. Open and the Qatar Classic, as well as reaching the top three in the World Rankings.
The ‘German Tree Chopper’ believes it was his best season on the PSA World Tour, but he also admits that it could have ended in a better fashion.
“I thought I had a really good season, possibly my best so far,” Rösner admitted.
“I just didn’t feel I was able to end the season on a high which is a bit unfortunate.”
Despite his end to the season, the leading European squash player is still taking the positives out of the 2019-2020 campaign.

“However I need to take all the positives out from my first half of the season where I reached the finals of Qatar and US Open and semis at Hong Kong and World Champs and reaching World No.3,” he said.
“That was a huge success. That felt amazing. Being amongst the very best in the world is very special.
“I feel privileged to compete at that level with the best players. Hope I can come back strong next season to even go a step further.”
He believes that those two performances, where Rösner reached the final, were his best over the course of the campaign.
“I think my best performances was reaching the two finals at the US and Qatar. Everything really came together on the days I played.”
The German has one goal for next season, to return to the uppermost echelons of the sport.
“Main goal is the return into the top 3 of the world,” he put it simply.
