R1: Diego 3-0 Ivan

[6] Diego Elias (PER) 3-0 Ivan Yuen (MAS) : 11-8, 11-9, 14-12 (45m)

I’ve never won a match at a World Championship, maybe one, my first one. This is very important for me, I want to play my best squash, and I think every time I’ve played here in Qatar I’ve done well. I like this court and I hope I can go further this time.

M win over ElShorbagy was really important  I was coming back from an injury last year, and I hadn’t beaten any top 10 players before that. The first time I beat ElShorbagy he was No.1, so it was really important for my confidence.

I’m feeling really good now, I hope I can go further in this tournament and hopefully win.
