It’s not often that I come across squash trick shots but this one courtesy of England’s James Willstrop might be the most impressive one that I’ve ever seen.
It occurred at the North American Open in a semifinal match against Egypt’s Ramy Ashour as James pulled off a pretty rare feat of a double-fake shot.
After Ramy had sent the ball into the corner with a low shot during a match point, Willstrop approached the ball and faked him with a couple of random racket waves until he fired a shot into the right corner for the winning point:
Sadly for James, he would lose the match to Ramy (who eventually won the entire tournament) but his trick shot will probably live forever in the annals of memorable squash shots.
