In this article Squash Stats will take a look at how the match durations have varied over the last 20 years. It is difficult to define absolute relationships from match durations statistics alone, mainly due to the fact there is a large variation in durations and it depends on a lot of factors. However, in this article we provide a point of reference whereby matches can be compared to general trends. We explore the match durations in terms of gender, tournament stage, scoreline, and player rank difference. We conclude the article by taking a look at the average match durations for current and previous players.
