Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet has improved steadily since he first joined the PSA World Tour in 2005. He first tasted success on the PSA World Tour with a win at the PSA Super Satellite De Sannois in September 2009 after defeating fellow Frenchman Gregoire Marche in the final. Saintes-born Castagnet reached the quarter-finals of the US Open in 2013 but lost out to compatriot Gregory Gaultier in straight games. Castagnet’s form kept improving and he made it to the quarter-final of the British Open in May 2014 but fell to an impressive Mohamed Elshorbagy despite earning a game off the Egyptian. His good form meant he broke into the World’s top twenty for the first time. He won his first, and biggest, PSA International 35 event at the Montreal Open in October 2014 and followed that up by breaking into the top 15 in the world the month after. He shocked Elshorbagy in a shock quarter-final victory at the British Grand Prix in December 2014 and made it to the final before being dispatched by Nick Matthew. Castagnet was named as the PSA Player of the Month in January 2015.
