TRUTH & Rumors

  • Squash needs more people like Alan Thatcher. He’s doing some fun things with his new blogSquashMad.com.
    • But their post on Oct. 7 ( here) looked surprisingly similar to Oct. 2’s Truth and Rumors (here).
  • Seshadri is an active online poster on the Let’s Talk Squash forum. And he loves his PSA. But he doesn’t think the upcoming US Open will be fun to watch. Read why here.
  • PST squash pro and good guy Rob Wilkins got married this past weekend to his longtime girlfriend Stacey.
  • Speaking of PST WAGs, Rob’s brother Phil, who is an elite squash coach based in Tuxedo, NY was seen snuggling court side at PST’s Northeast Open with a very cute yoga instructor.
  • In college tennis, there is an interesting situation with letson the serve.
    • Division I tennis doesn’t play with lets any more, but Div. II and III still use lets.
    • So what to do when teams play one another across divisions? Well, the home team has the prerogative.
    • For example, if Tufts (Div. III) hosts Villanova (Div. I) for a tennis match, they would play with lets.
    • If Villanova hosts Tufts, no lets.
  • Jahangir Khan‘s father Roshan Khan was a pretty good player himself. He won the 1957 British Open and reached the finals in 1956 and 1960.
    • At that time, the British Open was regarded as squash’s world championship event.
