FIVE MORE YEARS FOR DAVID
Nicol David’s coach, Liz Irving, declares in the latest Squash Player magazine that the phenomenal Malaysian, who has been world no.1 for 92 months, will be at the top of the sport for another five years and so pass New Zealander Susan Devoy’s record of 105 months.
Richard Eaton, squash’s top writer, assesses David’s prospects of an eighth world title at the World Championship beginning tomorrow in front of her demanding home crowd, while Irving and Egypt coach Omar El Borolossy give their views on possible future candidates to be world no.1.
Editor Ian McKenzie states that we won’t get into the Olympics if the top players keep running into each other and Eaton interviews new PSA refereeing guru Lee Drew about how he is going to solve the problem.
There are also the usual expert event previews and reviews, including the El Gouna International, the World Series Finals and the British National Championships, plus an in-depth programme section on London’s favourite event, the Canary Wharf Classic, a Workshop interview with Gregory Gaultier and a profile of Jordan’s big hope, Ahmad Alsaraj.
