MARCH - MEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Golan wins Squash Playerís Player of the Month award

Spainís Borja Golan is Squash Playerís Male Player of the Month for March after his best World Series performance since August 2014 in reaching the semi-finals of the $150,000 Windy City Open in the USA in February.

The 34-year-old followed up his 15th Spanish national title by beating world champion Karim Abdel Gawad 3/1 in the quarter-finals before losing to Franceís Gregory Gaultier in the last four.

Golanís 3/1 first-round win over Hong Kongís Max Lee in Chicago was the former world no.5ís first victory on the PSA Tour since last September.

"I had a back injury and a few months ago I didn't know if I'd be able to play again - I was 34 and my back wasn't responding well," said Golan, who had slipped to 21st in the world rankings.

"I kept doing the work and I was so happy to get back on court last year. But I hadn't won a match until this week and I think that match-winning confidence is so important to help you increase your level.

"And today [against Gawad] I had nothing to lose. I knew I'd have to be at my best and I took the opportunities. I defended well and tried to be very aggressive as well and change the pace, and it worked.Ē
