Briggs and Wolfenden, Canada Open 2017

Briggs: Consistency key to winning Canada title

Peter Briggs believes consistency was the key to winning his first major title at the weekend.

Briggs and his doubles partner Tom Wolfenden claimed the YONEX Canada Open title on Sunday thanks to an excellent 22-20 16-21 21-19 victory over Kim Won Ho and Seung Jae Seo.

They also knocked out world number 25 and second seeds Takuto Inoue and Yuki Kaneko along the way.    

Briggs said: "This is our first major title and for us it signifies that we've made a transition from being able to achieve one good win (in the past) to being able to string three strong wins and good performances back-to-back).

"We've learnt a lot about control under pressure and making solid decisions at critical times during matches."

"This gives us great confidence for the US Open. We know we've got a challenging draw but mentally we're in a great place and we're ready for it. The next few days should give our bodies a chance to recover and be ready for the next challenge."
