Boswell makes short work of the Fin at the ISS Canary Wharf Squash Classic. (From Squash Australia)
Canberra’s Stewart Boswell made short work of young Finish player Henrik Mustonen to charge into the quarter-finals of the Canary Wharf Classic in London on Monday.
Boswell was in no mood to hang around as he cruised past Mustonen in straight games 11-3, 11-2, 11-3 and into a quarter-final against fourth seeded Englishman Peter Barker.
The 32-year-old Boswell now lives in Manchester with his wife and young daughter and conceded it was getting harder to travel away to tournaments.
"Nothing has changed (with my game),” he said. Everything is fine, it’s just the travelling away that’s the problem.
“Before I used to enjoy going away, now it’s just too hard.”
Boswell, a former world number four, said he was still trying to find ways to change his game to compete with the younger players.
“I’m still trying to find some improvement in my game, obviously it’s getting harder as I get older.”
In the last match of the night, New South Welshman Matthew Karwalski just failed in his bid for another upset when he fell in qualifying to England’s Joey Barrington.
Karwalski beat two higher ranked players in the qualifying match and pushed Barrington all the way in a thrilling match, before succumbing 11-7, 10-12, 11-8, 7-11, 11-4.
