Nick Wall reaches 3rd round of PSA Paris Squash 2023

August 27 2023

Impressive wins by England’s Nick Wall over Nathan Lake and Omar Mosaad in the first two rounds of the Paris Squash 2023 saw him up against World No.2 Diego Elias of Peru for a place in the quarter-finals of his opening PSA World Tour event of the new season.

Despite another impressive showing, Nick faced a formidable opponent at the top of his form who secured the quarter-final spot with a 40-minute 11-5 11-4 11-6 victory.

In the opening game, both players demonstrated remarkable precision and finesse. Although Elias ultimately emerged as the dominant force, Wall showed his own skills, engaging in many competitive exchanges, before Elias successfully converted a game ball on his first attempt.

The second game witnessed the World No.2 amassing an impressive six game balls, however his English opponent, undeterred by the pressure, continued to display admirable resilience. Elias eventually capitalised on his advantage with his signature efficiency to establish a commanding two-game lead.

Positioned on the brink of potentially regaining his World No.1 ranking in the forthcoming week, Elias continued to demonstrate remarkable agility and fluid movement as the match progressed which proved decisive in seizing control and ultimately securing the match.

While Elias' impressive form was evident, Nick Wall's journey and performance throughout the tournament should not be underestimated. His tenacity and skill in reaching the third round confirms his emergence as a talented squash player and potential title contender in the near future.
