3 SQUASHED ’EM

Finweek English Edition - - LIFESTYLE -

WHAT UN­BE­LIEV­ABLE SQUASH in the fi­nals of the SA Na­tional cham­pi­onships.

Shaun le Roux up­set the num­ber one seed Steve Cop­pinger 3-1 to lift the tro­phy for the first time while Siy­oli Wa­ters beat Mil­nay Louw 3-1 to suc­cess­fully de­fend her ladies’ ti­tle.

Cop­pinger is SA’s high­est ranked player in world squash at 21, Le Roux is cur­rently ranked 51 and Wa­ters is 34.

But none of them were af­forded the op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent SA at the Com­mon­wealth Games.

It makes no sense at all, es­pe­cially for a sport that seems to be trans­form­ing bet­ter than most.

All smiles from the SA Squash cham­pi­ons
