Johnstone loses in 4 sets in Pro Squash Tour final

Wade Johnstone, 31, the head squash pro at the Bare Hills Racquet and Fitness Club in northern Baltimore, lost to top-seeded David Palmer, 3-1 (11-9, 4-11, 7-11, 8-11), in the championship match of the Pro Squash Tour's world championship tournament in Detroit on Sunday. On Saturday, Johnstone defeated Mohamed El Sherbini of Egypt to reach the final. "Unfortunately David Palmer was too strong for me today and in all honesty there is no shame losing to a player of his caliber, former World No. 1 and two-time world champion," Johnstone wrote in an email. "Of course it's never fun losing, but I played well and I was beaten by a better player on the day, so I'm extremely happy with the match and the tournament. There were no shenanigans or blocking during the match, it was perfectly clean and Palmer won fair and square. It just means I have to get fitter and stronger if I want to earn myself a victory against him next time."

D.C. United: Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic announced that United's match on Wednesday at 7 p.m. against the Houston Dynamo will be televised on CSN Plus.
