You Don’t Have to Know Anything About Squash to Appreciate this Amazing Trick Shot (Video)

amazing squash trick shot

Chances are you don’t know very much about squash. So you probably didn’t know that there is such a thing as Squash TV, or a Professional Squash Association World Series, which consists of seven major tournaments held in England, Kuwait, Quatar, and the USA.

Well, they exist. And at the North American Open, a World Series event held from February 25 to March 2, one player hit a truly incredible shot that even those with zero understanding of squash can appreciate.

That player was England’s James Willstrop. In the semifinals against Ramy Ashour of Egypt, Willstrop hit a rare double-fake shot. What this means is that he fakes one shot and then another before actually hitting the ball. It’s basically the equivalent of a double-deke in hockey, only it’s a lot harder to do because it requires just the right opportunity to pull it off.

Take a look:

Not bad, right?

Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, Willstrop was down 2-1 at that point, and Ashour would go on to win that match and the tournament. But at least the Englishman has squash’s “shot of the year.”
