DARYL SELBY GOING TO HEAVEN - QUATAR OPEN 2013

If you have never ever beaten a rival that you've been playing against for about 18 years, and then you get a chance to do so by going up 2:0, then again 5:0 in the fifth...

UNCLE HISHAM, A LEGEND OF HIS OWN: HISHAM ASHOUR vs. SAURAV GHOSAL

As far as it seams Hisham Ashour retired from the PSA (he played only four matches this year, only won one of them - the one in the clip against Saurav Ghosal - and he's not in the draw of any upcoming event). A shame.

13.09.26. 16:03

HUNTING HIGH AND LOW: RAMY ASHOUR vs. CAMERON PILLEY

Obviously when Ramy Ashour is involved in a rally where he has to chase the ball it's always hilarious: such is his agility, speed and most of all, his extraterrestrial interception.

13.09.21. 19:10

THE DAVID PALMER EFFECT: STEVEN COPPINGER vs. SIMON ROSNER

Some people don't know squash. Some people know squash but think it is not fun to watch on TV. Have a look at the below 15 videos, a selection of the hardest and most fun rallies of the past few years, and you might change idea.

13.04.13. 14:56

VINTAGE DAVID PALMER DIVE, VINTAGE KARIM DARWISH EXECUTION

Some vintage stuff in vintage quality (unfortunately), but it makes me miss David Palmer and his crazy dives (which were in such interesting opposition with the general discipline and steadiness of his game).

13.04.09. 15:37

SPEED AND FLAIR, SHOW ME ANYBODY MORE FUNNY THAN MIGUEL ANGEL RODRIGUEZ

We can be really grateful that Miguel Angel Rodriguez has chosen to play squash. Just imagine what football player he could have become for example (and how much money and fame he could earn with that).

13.03.20. 14:55

RETRIEVING MEANS COUNTER-ATTACKING: RAMY ASHOUR vs. TAREK MOMEN

Probably the two most exciting players to watch on the tour, Ramy Ashour and Tarek Momen give us a pretty good example of how the Egyptians conceive the idea of "retrieving".

13.03.06. 17:42

RAMY ASHOUR + JAMES WILLSTROP + USA = MASTERPIECES FOR THE AGES

Well, if there had been only that extraordinary triple-fake by James Willstrop at 6:10, matchball down in the fourth game, this match would already feature in the history books.

13.03.03. 15:43

THE EXTRAORDINARY TRIPLE FAKE by JAMES WILLSTROP

Even though considering the whole match, Ramy Ashour created another masterpiece against James Willstrop in the semi-final of the 2013 North American Open...

13.03.02. 19:44

ROCK AND ROLL SQUASH: RAMY ASHOUR vs. GREGORY GAULTIER AT THE 2013 TOC

13.01.26. 21:08

BEST AND WORST WAY TO CONCLUDE A MATCH: GREGOIRE MARCHE vs. OLLI TUOMINEN

Oups! Hitting a volley nick is always a pleasure. Finishing a match with a volley nick is always an extra pleasure. Getting your biggest win of your carrier by date with a volley nick makes it even more special.

13.01.19. 21:10

HITTING THE BALL TO THE BODY II.: AMR SHABNA vs. NICK MATTHEW + 2013 TOC PREVIEW

I guess most of you have already seen the highlights of the PSA World Series Finals, Amr Shabana's steam roller win over Nick Matthew. The reason why I am getting back to this clip is the shot at 4:01.

13.01.10. 15:56

OKAY, THE VERY BEST DOUBLE FAKE EVER: JONATHON POWER vs. MARTIN HEATH

So we had Amr Shabana a few days ago concluding a perfect tournament, and producing an incredible double fake against James Willstrop in the semi-final.

13.01.08. 18:08

THE BEST DOUBLE FAKE EVER: AMR SHABANA vs. JAMES WILLSTROP

We've had in the past a few examples of Amr Shabana and James Willstrop employing the double fake in the front of the court: showing a menacing a big swing just not to hit the ball with that swing and then hitting a subtle drop shot.

13.01.06. 19:38

12.12.26. 14:53

THE FOREHAND DROP MASTERS: KARIM DARWISH vs. MOHAMED EL SHORBAGY

To control a forehand drop shot, most players need to reduce their swing dramatically. The two guys who have developed an incredibly skill-full forehand drop technique are old master Karim Darwish and new master Mohamed El Shorbagy.

12.12.23. 14:00

UNDER THE TIN / FROG PERSPECTIVE: AMR SHABANA vs. JAMES WILLSTROP

Just for fun I have tried to film from the lowest position possible, under the tin, just behind that little ventilation whole.

12.12.20. 15:39

SECOND BIG STEP TOWARDS GLORY: MOHAMED EL SHORBAGY

Last year in our end-of-year ranking analysis I wrote that I would expect big things from Mohamed El Shorbagy for the year 2012.

12.12.16. 14:54

A NEW CONTENDER FOR THE GREATEST RALLY EVER: MOHAMED EL SHORBAGY vs. RAMY ASHOUR

12.12.15. 09:37

WALLBANGERS MOVIE: "...I DON'T KEEP RUNNER-UP CUPS"

We all love squash, and the best show is the one that Ramy Ashour and co. produce on the court. This time however we have a documentary movie, in production phase, that shows us the stars behind the scene.

12.12.06. 15:33

12.11.27. 15:25

HOW NOT TO SERVE TO THE BODY: DARYL SELBY vs. RAMY ASHOUR

The best possible serve is the one that finds the sidewall high with a mid pace so that your opponent has to scrape his return off the wall as otherwise the next bounce on the floor would die around the backwall nick.

12.11.20. 16:52

12.11.13. 16:53

CHASING THE BALL AROUND THE HOUSE: ALISTER WALKER vs. CHRIS SIMPSON

A very entertaining rally. Fantastic gets, a few shots from behind the back, you can't ask for more. Crazy rallies like this, we generally get them from Ramy Ashour vs. Nick Matthew or vs. James Willstrop.

12.11.06. 17:17

SHOTS THAT DON'T EXIST I.: RAMY ASHOUR vs. DARYL SELBY

I feel Ramy Ashour's racket technique is sometimes slightly mystified. I think it's not as unorthodox as that...

12.11.01. 17:52

GREGORY GAULTIER vs. AMR SHABANA NETSUIT OPEN 2012 SEMI-FINAL FULL MATCH REPLAY

As a follow-up to yesterday's full match replay of the final of the 2012 Netsuit Open in San Francisco, here is another great performance by Gregory Gaultier and mighty Amr Shabana at semi-final stage ...

12.10.25. 17:01

GREGORY GAULTIER vs. NICK MATTHEW NETSUIT OPEN 2012 FINAL FULL MATCH REPLAY

Exceptionally we offer a bit longer stuff. As Squash TV was unfortunately absent from the $70k Netsuit Open 2012 squash tournament...

12.10.24. 20:01

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME: RAMY ASHOUR vs. JAMES WILLSTROP - BRITISH OPEN 2012

Basically this blog was born out of two things: 1) watching and observing pros playing 2) trying to adapt those points that are possible to adapt on a club player level.

12.10.17. 16:31

THE SHOT OF THE (PREVIOUS) CENTURY - BRETT MARTIN vs. PETER MARSHALL

12.10.16. 16:28

US OPEN 2011/2012: AMR SHABANA vs. NICK MATTHEW

12.10.10. 17:22

A CLASSIC FOR THE AGES: JAMES WILLSTROP vs. GREGORY GAULTIER - 2012 BRITISH GRAND PRIX

Due to other - less fun - commitments, the activity level of the No Let! blog might have been terribly low the ultimate few weeks, but luckily we still get to see the most important things that are going on on the tour.

12.09.24. 17:28

THE GENEALOGY OF THE RAMY ASHOUR BACKHAND VOLLEY NICK

First of all it has to be noted that no shot is based on itself. For example take Tarek Momen and his famous attacking boasts - they wouldn't be as efficient as they are if his length game wouldn't be as solid and powerful as it is.

12.09.12. 16:34

RAMY ASHOUR vs. DARYL SELBY - THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING

I was there live at this match, and the very first thing that struck me was the number of viewers, hardly any - okay it was first round, but it was the British Open, it was in London, in the O2 stadium, and the world #4 ...

Szombaton lesz a talán legjobb balatoni program!

Tavaly ott voltam az első Bohém Légyotton, és nem túlzás azt állítani, hogy egy hihetetlenül hangulatos programról van szó, finom borokkal, jó hangulattal, nagyon normális emberekkel egy fantasztikus helyen...

Amerikai almáspite

A kedvenc pitém. Vaníilia fagyival verhetetlen.A piacon gyönyörű, zöld színű nyári almákat kaptam, talán fontosalmának nevezik, de ebben nem vagyok biztos. Savanykás, az tuti.

Egyben sült csirke nyári céklákkal

Vasárnap délelőtt, lassan ébredezik a város, a Tűzoltó utcai kézműves söröző udvarán azonban már korán reggel nagy az izgalom.

Sütés nélküli sajttorta csatos üvegben

A Nők Lapja mostani számában amerikai ihletésű recepteket találtok tőlem: hamburger tépett sertéshússal, nyári lazacleves csöves kukoricával, ragacsos, csípős csirkeszárny, többek között.

Ropogós sajtgolyók

Számtalanszor hallom az ismerősöktől, hogy imádom a rántott sajtot, de nem készítek, mert annyira macerás.
