SIMPSON SLIDES INTO SEMIFINAL | 25th September 2015 | PICTURES
Today's match between Chris Simpson (ENG) and Greg Lobban (SCO) was a master class in basics. The players exchanged some long, lovely rallies, but Simpson staked his claim to the T early and was always in control, winning 11-2, 11-5, 12-10 in 51 minutes.
"I was quite surprised by how well i played in the first game especially," Simpson said. "I felt like I was the one controlling the pace. I always felt slightly ahead in the rallies, and that eventually wore him out toward the end. I'm very happy to be done in three."
"It was tough," Lobban said. "Chris dominated the court for the majority of the match. No matter how hard I tried, he found a way to stay in the middle. I ran out of gas quicker than I usually do because he was dominating the middle."
