LOOK OUT FOR:  Blistering speed and beautiful movement.
I watched Greg recently as he won the Tournament of Champions in New York. He was in excellent form and beat David Palmer in the quarters, new world No.1 Karim Darwish in the semis, and an in-form Nick Matthew in the final.

Greg moves wonderfully well and when he is mentally focussed he is very difficult to beat. In the final Nick tried everything to stem the tide but could not upset his rhythm. Greg took his time and just played great squash. As the match moved on he was getting further up the court as Nick was pinned further back.

Greg is still improving and has clearly been working hard back in France with a very solid support group around him. He knows he needs to stay physically fit and learn how to use up less energy as he is playing.

In 2007 he became the first Frenchman to win the British Open, beating compatriot Thierry Lincou in the final.

He finished 2008 strongly, reaching three consecutive finals, winning the Macau Open and finishing as runner-up in both the Hong Kong Open and Saudi International. He is clearly continuing that form in 2009 and will be hungry for success here at Canary Wharf.
