The 2007 Atlanta Masters

The Atlanta Masters was a total sell out and not event a seat was available for the final between the current world number 1 Amr Shabana from Egypt against the former world number one John White from Scotland.

With 130 packed squash enthusiasts they were in for a treat and a treat was just what they got from these two world class players. With more room it still would have been sold out and several players had to be turned away at the door for last minute tickets. With an open bar and a $2000 buffet from Atlanta Creative Events the crowd had everything was they asked for. Squash was at its finest with both players entertaining the crowd with shots and jokes. The 90 min game was one of the best I have ever seen and one can see why Amr is the number 1 player in the world. Amr squeezed 12-10 in the fifith and the crowd were amazed how athletic and flexible these players are. With over 20 juniors in the front row both players signed shirts, hats and posed for pictures of their future stars to be. After the game both players took the time to answer any questions from the crowd. Everyone was happy with their performance and I am sure we will see a lot more from these players.
