Guernsey's Chris Simpson says he is disappointed with how he started the match in his defeat to world number one Ramy Ashour at the British Open.
Simpson lost 11-2, 11-4, 11-9 to the Egyptian and trailed 10-0 in the first.
"It's not a nice feeling, the first couple of rallies of the match I had a few opportunities to play some quite easy drop winners," he said.
"But I got quite nervous after missing those easy shots and before I knew it i was facing game ball at 10-0."
The tournament was the last ranking event of the season for Simpson, who had beaten Switzerland's Nicolas Muller 7-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-4 in the opening round.
"In the third game I managed to relax a bit more and push my game upon him a bit better than the first two," he told
"I'm a little disappointed that I couldn't have started the match like that," he added.
