Willstrop takes 4th Canary Wharf Classic title!

On his opponent, James Willstrop said: "It's incredibly tough following a win like he had last night - any win against Nick is like winning an event!

James Willstrop collected his 4th Canary Wharf Classic title with a stunning display of quality squash to subdue his England team-mate Peter Barker in the final at East Wintergarden in London.

Barker, the No4 seed from Essex had produced an outstanding performance to beat reigning champion Nick Matthew in the semi-finals, but he was unable to repeat that level of consistency against Willstrop, the world No4.

“This is one of my favourite venues – I love playing in the Canary Wharf Classic,” said Willstrop, who beat Barker 11-8, 5-11, 11-4, 11-4 after 57 minutes of play.
