Thanks to Jamie Davis for sending through this video clip from the US Open clash between Alison Waters and Donna Urquhart.
The Australian gets a No Let. The decision is upheld by the Video Review.
What do you think?
SQUASH MAD DEBATE:
I agree with the decision.
It’s 10-10 in the fifth game of a titanic battle.
Look at the previous shot. Donna Urquhart plays a poor-length drive that lands inside the left-hand service box (poor width; poor length).
Alison Waters jumps on it and drives it to a good width, with the ball bouncing in the front half of the court.
It isn’t an outright kill, but because of Urquhart’s poor shot, she is trapped behind Waters (whereas a better-length shot would have moved her opponent off the T and allowed her to get in front).
Maybe Urquhart is tired, but Waters does nothing wrong here. The only person at fault is Urquhart.
SQUASH MAD VERDICT: Urquhart is out of position because of her own poor shot and her own poor positioning, and the ball has bounced at least twice before she reaches it.
