Darwish in the semis, and an in-form Nick Matthew in the final.
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

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
