Cameron Stafford may be a novice squash player in the pros but he is wasting no time in climbing up the world rankings.
Stafford has climbed from world No.430 in June 2011 to No.176 this month, an incredible progression considering how competitive the sport is at top level.
Inspired by his squash hero Ramy Ashor, the double world champion who played at the Cayman Open two years ago, Stafford is confident he can reach those heights one day.
Although he has lost 16 of his 26 matches, the defeats have been against higher level, seasoned pros which has helped the 20-year-old Caymanian who mainly plays in tournaments in Australia.
Stafford played an exhibition match with coach Mark Chaloner at the World Open and hopes to one day be competing for the men’s title.
