Biography: 2013 Colombian Open Champion, Peter Barker is known for his consistency, having achieved a quarter-final place at all 13 PSA World Series events he competed in during 2011 and 2012.
The Englishman, heralding from Harold Wood, won bronze at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi after defeating Mohd Azlan Iskandar.
He also came close to knocking out the eventual tournament winner, Ramy Ashour, in the 2012 US Open quarter-final after securing match point but the Egyptian managed to turn things around.
He had a good 2013, defeating Nick Matthews for only the second time in his career at the Canary Wharf Classic, before losing to James Willstrop in the final.
