Squash Captain’s Report: Day 4 at World Champs 2014

IMG_1852

RSA beat Mexico 2-0

Mexico was the next team on our path to our Top 10 goal. This team is lead by Samantha Teran who has been a Top20 player for many years. The order of play was 2,1,3.

Milnay Louw went on first against a player that runs after every ball. She played good attacking squash to see her get into the lead, but her opponent picked up everything and took the first game. Louw then mixed up the pace in the second game, which seemed to do the trick. Game Score1-1. The players were quite evenly matched and were fighting hard in each rally. Then it was 2-1 to Mexico, the 2-2. In the last game, Louw decided to stop playing catch up, and took control of the game by dominating in the middle and being clever with her shot selection. She went 8-3 up before finally clinching the final and crucial game!

I went on next knowing it would never be an easy battle, especially since I had recently lost to Teran in October. Instead I focused on the game plan we had come up with, and it worked! I took the first game 11-2. In the second game, she raised her game, but I didn’t respond fast enough and she took that game, also 11-2. In the 3rd and 4th, I went back to the plan and managed to produce the squash to execute it, and soon took the match 3-1, which gave South Africa the victory we needed!!!

We will now go on to play New Zealand, 9th seeds, to fight for a place in the Top10.
