Matthew is the old and the new NAO champion!

The English current world open champion Nick Matthew (pic) stays on top in Richmond, when he beat Egyptian world No.2 Ramy Ashour in 5 entertaining games. With this victory Matthew regains his 2010 North American Open title. As the Englishman managed to built up a 2 games lead, the Richmond crowd saw the Egyptian striking back to level the match. It was Matthew who was able to open up a 3 point gap and saved it until the end (11-9, 11-5, 8-11, 8-11, 11-6).
