AUGUST - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH


Chan wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Hong Kong’s Joey Chan has been nominated as Squash Player’s Player of the Month for August after winning the silver medal at the World Games in Poland.

Although the 29-year-old joint third seed lost in straight games to French favourite Camille Serme in the final, she had already exceeded expectations by stunning eight-time world champion Nicol David in the semi-finals.

“The silver medal means a lot and it is one of my biggest achievements in squash career,” said Chan. “The World Games is a multi-sporting event and so to be able to win a silver medal for Hong Kong is incredible.

“I was seeded 3/4 in the draw and so set a target of getting into the top four before I went to Wroclaw. The feeling of meeting and going beyond my seeding was great, and it was a breakthrough in my squash career.

“Most importantly, it always feels great to see the flag of your country rise up in the prize ceremony in a such big sporting event.”
