Biography: Londoner Adrian Grant, a PSA member since 1999, has maintained an unbroken presence in the world top 20 since March 2006. He burst into the top 10 in June 2009 and claimed a career-high No9 world ranking two months later in August.
The left-hander won his first PSA Tour title at the Wellington Open in New Zealand in 2000, and claimed the biggest title of his career ten years later in November 2010 when he won the Santiago Open in Spain, beating Egypt’s Omar Mosaad in the final.
In March 2011, Grant picked up the 18th Tour title of his career at the Manitoba Open in Canada – success which consolidated his position as the current Englishman with the second highest tally of titles, behind England team-mate Nick Matthew.
A highly successful junior – with the European U19 crown and British national titles at U14, U16 and U19 (beating Matthew in the U16 final) - Grant has been a regular in England senior team line-ups since 2004.
It was with Matthew that he won his first Commonwealth Games gold medal, in the Men’s Doubles in Delhi in 2010.
Grant, now 32, competed in 14 PSA Tour events in 2012 – notching up the 29th Tour final appearance of his career at the KL Open in March after ousting Egypt's top seed and defending champion Karim Darwish in the semi-finals.
His 2013 campaign began well at the Tournament of Champions in New York where a marathon five-game win over Cameron Pilley – in which the Australian had a two-game lead – saw him make the last 16 round for the third time.
