This match was played at the TOC in New York in 2008, John White's last year on the tour, at the age of 34! He is trailing 1:2 in sets and the fourth matchballs against him, the opponent is Gregory Gaultier, 26 years old and PSA #03 at that time. White is very tired, he is not lounging but throwing himself towards the ball, with the upper body almost falling over each time. The crowd, just as the commentators, were celebrating the man, who before the era of Ramy Ashour, was the only player to get to the top of the rankings playing basically always in 'exhibition mode'. A big cheers to the big man.
