I play social squash with a friend each week and we play for money.
We played today with the final score: 11-3, 7-11, 12-10, 1-11, 11-8. My friend winning.
I'm a lot fitter than my friend and as such, I often play a lot better later in the game. This was highly noticeable by my 11-1 win in the fourth set. However, my friend had two long breaks at very crucial points in the match.
Break 1 - After the fourth set ended, he left the arena and the break was between 8-10minutes
Break 2 - 8-8 in the fourth set. I was ahead 6-0, he came back to lead 8-6, then I got momentum back and had the score at 8-8, then he requests a break.
In my opinion, these two breaks cost me the match, especially the 8-10 minutes between the fourth and fifth sets. The courts were empty also so it killed any momentum/vibe the game had. I recover quickly and felt like the fifth set was pretty much a fresh game altogether.
