Grégory Gaultier

Grégory Gaultier was born on 23RD of December, 1982 known for his imposing physical style and unrelenting stamina, Gregory Gaultier is one of the most combative players on the PSA World Tour and will go down as a true great of the game when he eventually hangs up his racket.

‘The French General’ showed promise from the very start of his career, reaching the final of the World Junior Championship in 2000 before losing to Karim Darwish but he made up for that by winning the 2001 British Junior Open.

The enigmatic Frenchman reached the final of the World Championship in 2006 after defeating defending-champion Amr Shabana in the semi-final. Despite going two games and five match balls up in the final against Australian David Palmer, Gaultier was pegged back and the match eventually ended in a 3-2 loss.
He has since lost a further three World Championship finals, in 2007 against Amr Shabana, and in 2011 and 2013, on both occasions losing out to Englishman Nick Matthew.

Gaultier became the first Frenchman ever to win the British Open, in 2007, defeating compatriot Thierry Lincou in the process. He also became the only Frenchman to win the Tournament of Champions when he triumphed over Nick Matthew in 2009’s final.
