Matthew beats Selby to make it three!

World No1 Nick Matthew (pic le) did not face any problems in the all-English semi-final of the Case Swedish Open when he overrun world No10 Daryl Selby (pic ri) in the first two games 11-4 and 11-5. The 3rd looked as Matthew would be able to close the match in straight games but compatriot Selby fought back to 1:2 (8-11). As the players get on court for the 4th game it was Matthew who started to pressure his opponent and built a comfortable lead to make the final with his 1st match ball. It will be Matthew’s 3rd final in a row, while he won the first two without proper matches caused by injuries of the opponents (Karim Darwish 2009 and James Willstrop 2010).
