After James Willstrop (pic le) beats David Palmer in the 2nd round of the Australian Open, the Englishman seems to be the man of today so far when he took out 4 times World Champion Amr Shabana (Egy, pic ri) in just 32 minutes in straight games (11-4, 11-5, 11-7). 2nd quarter-final showed World no.1 Nick Matthew coming back from one game down to overcome his English compatriot Peter Barker in a tough four-games encounter (2-11, 11-6, 11-5, 12-10). 4th seed Irish girl Madeline Perry produced almost the same result against English Laura Massaro to get to the semi-final. Alison Water from England followed Perry, when she beat New Zealand’s Jaclyn Hawkes without any problems (11-5, 11-9, 11-7).
