Nick Matthew beats Omar Mosaad at Grasshopper Cup
“I had the feeling that the match was a bit boring compared to the first match tonight – it's strange the thoughts you have in your head on there,” said Matthew after his 52 minute victory.

“I was a bit lucky in the second and third games, I gave him opportunities and he missed them and maybe went for the shot too early. I played the tactics I wanted in the first game but credit to him. He's not had a great season but he was back to some of his best today and he was on form. He slowed me down and frustrated me so I was a bit lucky to get away with it.”

Matthew will play Ali Farag in the semi-finals of the Professional Squash Association M100 World Tour event.
