R1: Adrian 3-0 Chris

Adrian Waller (ENG) 3-0 Chris Simpson (ENG) 15-13, 11-7, 11-1 (44m)

It is a familiar match playing Chris, because we have played so many times over the years. I knew I would be in for a tough battle, because he never gives up.

I had to stay focused throughout the whole match, and even in the third when I had a big lead, I had to stay conscious not to give him anything because he can get into a groove that you struggle to get him out of.
