Unseeded Lewis Anderson Captures Bronze

The Unseeded Lewis Anderson, a Warwickshire palyer, captured bronze in Kuala Lumpur at the WSF World Junior Squash Championships 2019.

From the England squash website:

Appearing in his World Championship debut, the unseeded left-hander played squash of the highest order and stole the show with three successive upsets which saw the 18-year-old gatecrash the last four.

The first of those was the biggest – victory over 3/4 seed Czech Viktor Byrtus in five: 11-9, 13-15, 11-6, 4-11, 11-6 followed by a straight-games win over Egyptian Karim Elbarbary 11-7 11-7, 11-5. Anderson continued his winning run in the quarter-finals by seeing off India’s 9/12 seed Veer Chotrani, the Asian Junior champion in four: 11-8, 11-9, 9-11, 11-7 to set up a semi-final showdown with defending champion Mostafa Asal. However, the top seed and world No. 29 proved too much for Anderson as Asal powered through to an 11-5, 11-5, 11-2 victory.
