Nottingham-born Declan James has made great strides up the World Rankings in recent years and lifted his first PSA World Tour title in his home-town despite being unseeded for the event.
He would go on to retain the title the following year and, after securing his 5th PSA World Tour title at the Christchurch International Open, he moved into the world's top 60 players for the first time in the July 2015 World Rankings.
James was named as the PSA Men's June Player of the Month to cap a superb season.
Wins at the Fiberglass Open, Nash Cup and Steel City Open made it four successive PSA World Tour titles for James who moved into the world’s top 50 players for the first time in October 2015.
His 17-match unbeaten streak was eventually ended by Clinton Leeuw in the quarter-final of the Minneapolis Open a month later.
England’s James went onto make back-to-back final appearances in 2016 in the Gillenmarkets Irish Squash Open IG Open De Paris, where he fell short of the main prize in both. However, title victory came in the Nash Cup in September 2016 when he saw off competition from Diego Elias to lift the trophy and successfully defend his title.
James saw more success in 2017, as he won the Irish Squash Open and the Arnold Tring Homes Open in successive weeks. He also finished runner-up in the DPD Open, before securing a third title of the calendar year, by overcoming Tom Richards in the final of the London Open.
The Englishman claimed the 13th title of his career at the Open International de Squash de Nantes in 2018, where he beat compatriot James Willstrop in the final.
