Illingworth named wild card entry

SH17724Organizers of the PSA’s 2015 World Championships have named Julian Illingworth as the tournament wildcard.

The nine-time U.S. national champion has been the leading figure in U.S. men’s squash over the past decade, spending five years ranked among the top 40 players in the world and reaching #24 in 2012, the highest PSA ranking ever for an American.

Awarding Illingworth a spot in the draw is also a nod toward his Pacific Northwest roots – he’s a native of Portland, a three-hour drive down the interstate from Bellevue, Washington, the site of this year’s championship.
