BRITISH squash sensation Nick Matthew will look to end his incredible season on a high at the PSA World Series squash finals next week at Queen’s Club, Kensington.

The 30-year-old Commonwealth Games double gold-medallist and world number one heads a strong world top-eight field in the US$130,000 end of season tour finale.

Matthew’s main challenge at Queen’s Club is expected to come from Egypt’s Ramy Ashour – the man he took the world number one spot from.

The 23-year-old ‘Cairo King’ held the position from the very start of 2010 until Matthew’s success in Delhi last month.

Compatriots Karim Darwish, winner of three PSA Tour titles this year, and Amr Shabana are also former world number ones and could also feature in the finals come the afternoon of Saturday January 15.

The French duo of Gregory Gaultier and Thierry Lincou, along with east Londoner Peter Barker, complete the eight-man line-up. The event will also include an exhibition match between top British women Alison Waters and Commonwealth Games runner-up Jenny Duncalf.

Tickets are available by calling 0870 264 3333 or 020 7385 3421, otherwise catch all the action on Sky Sports.
