Matthew Celebrates Swedish Open Hat-Trick


England's Nick Matthew claimed his third successive Case Swedish Open title after beating fellow countryman Peter Barker in the final of the PSA World Tour International 50 squash event at Linköping Sporthall in Linköping.


It was the pair's third meeting this year - and Matthew was able to clinch his third win, overcoming his London-based England team-mate 11-7, 11-6, 11-5.


"It was a close match, but today I deserved to win," said Matthew, the world number one from Sheffield, after the match.


Matthew, who became England's first ever world champion in December, has now increased his PSA Tour title haul to 18.


"Tournament Director Fredrik Johnson announced after the match that the Swedish Open will be played in Linköping again next year - and the cooperation with Case will continue," said event spokesman Andreas Suihko. "Both Nick Matthew and Peter Barker said that they hope to return for next year's tournament."


Matthew will now turn his attention to domestic matters and the British National Championships this week in Manchester, where he is seeded to win the men's title for a record-equalling fourth time.
