Player Info

Simon Rösner is Germany’s leading squash player, known for his tall build, and has made good progress on the PSA World Tour since turning professional in 2004. The German star had to wait until 2009 to secure his first PSA World Tour title courtesy of his victory at the Garavan’s West of Ireland event over American Gilly Lane. In October 2012, Rösner won the Santiago Squash Open, his first PSA International 25 event win, after defeating Cameron Pilley 3-1 in the final. 2013 saw a strong showing in the North American Open. He participated in a closely-fought ‘battle of the giants’ against Omar Mosaad in the second round, beating the Egyptian in a five game thriller. He then went on to face eventual winner Ramy Ashour in the final. He followed that up with a silver medal at the World Games in Cali and won the Alwatan and Asnan International against Borja Golan in December 2013. November 2014 brought Rösner his eighth PSA World Tour title at the Edmonton Open. He defeated Egyptian Tarek Momen in a mammoth five-game final to earn his biggest ever PSA World Tour title weeks after breaking into the top ten in the world for the first time.
