Nick Matthew stormed to a record seventh British national title in Manchester when he defeated England team-mate Daryl Selby 3/0 in a one-sided final.
The 34-year-old top seed from Sheffield, who had won his last 10 matches against 3/4 seed Selby, made it 11 wins in a row over the Essex player with an 11-5, 11-3, 11-2 victory in 45 minutes.
The triple world champion thus avenged his defeat by Selby in the 2011 final, which is the only match he has lost in the championship in eight years.
The success brought Matthew his fourth consecutive national title. Furthermore, it was achieved without losing a game and he has now won an astonishing 20 matches in succession at the championship.
Sarah-Jane Perry followed up her shock win over defending champion Alison Waters by beating top seed Laura Massaro to win the British National Women’s Championship for the first time.
The 24-year-old from Warwickshire, who prior to this year had never got beyond the quarter-finals of the championship, resisted a fine fightback by the world no.3 from Lancashire to triumph 3/2 in a thrilling 80-minute final at the National Squash Centre in Manchester.
Initially, Perry showed no signs of her five-game success over four-time winner Waters when she had to save a match-ball. The double British U23 champion, who had never previously beaten Massaro, displayed great stamina to take the first two games 12-10, 11-9, however, the two-time winner from Preston then hit back to win the next two 11-7, 12-10 and level the match at 2/2. At that stage the odds were on a third national title for the 31-year-old Massaro, but world no.16 Perry had other ideas and grabbed the decider 11-7.
