World Champion Tarek Momen will be the top seed for the Troilus Gold Canada Cup this week, and the Egyptian has admitted that a change in mindset has helped him on court.
The World No.3 comes into the Canada Cup, a PSA World Tour Silver event held in Toronto, following a three-week break after January’s J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions and he believes it has helped him both physically and mentally.
“I took some time to recover after the Tournament of Champions before I started training again. It was good to have three or four weeks to get some work done physically and work on a few things on court,” the World Champion admitted.
“I’ve been working for a while on my mindset to ignore all the numbers and seedings and just focus on winning matches as much as I can.
“I find this method very effective, as I no longer feel the difference between a first round match and a final.”
Momen has fond memories of Toronto, having lifted this trophy three years ago. He will be aiming to replicate that success this week,
