Matthew comeback at
Forexx Dutch Open


Nick Matthew is set to make his return to international  competition during the Forexx Dutch Open Squash 2008, which is being held from 2nd to 7th of September in the renowned Frans Otten Stadion in Amsterdam.

The Dutch PSA 3 star event will be the world number seven’s first professional tournament after undergoing surgery to his right shoulder which kept him out of action for more than six months.

The shoulder injury came at an unfortunate time for the 27-year old Englishman who had an impressive end to 2007. After a slight setback with an ankle injury, sustained in January, Matthew finished off the year on a high by claiming the US Open title beating Thierry Lincou in the quarters, Ramy Ashour in the semis and compatriot James Willstrop in the final. He also reached the semi finals of the World Open in Bermuda and finished runner-up at the English Open in his hometown Sheffield.

On top of that Matthew led a strong English team, supported by countrymen James Willstrop, Lee Beachill and Peter Barker, to win the world title during the Men's World Team Championships in India last December, beating Australia 2-1 in the final.

“We are extremely excited that Nick has chosen the Forexx Dutch Open to make his comeback on the PSA scene, he is without doubt a great asset for our event,” said tournament director Tommy Berden.

“Not only is he one of the best players in the world, but his fast and aggressive style of play makes him very exciting to watch. We still have three more weeks before entries close, so we are working hard to ensure that we can present another world class player at the men’s side in addition to Nick and our Dutch favourite Laurens Jan Anjema,” said the former Dutch champion.

Earlier this month tournament organizers Next Events announced the participation of the world’s number one and two female players, Nicol David and Natalie Grinham.
