Cayman’s top squash player Cameron Stafford battled through a tough first round loss to 4th ranked David Baillargeon 3-1 (11-8, 11-8, 8-11, 11-5) at the Life Time Florida Open 7th December in Boca Raton, Florida. Cayman 27 spoke with Stafford who said he was outmatched against the Canadian.
“I thought I played well but I just lost to the better player on the night.”
Stafford, the Professional Squash Association’s number 239th ranked player said Baillargeon, the PSA’s 128th ranked player deserved to win.
“I may a few critical errors on the keys points, but credit to him, he dug in deep and won the match fair and square.”
