Nick Matthew - New #1 squash player

Congratulations to Nick on achieving the #1 spot in the world.  This last year of squash from Nick has been very impressive.  He has steadily moved up the rankings from the middle to bottom of the top 10 to being the top player in the world.  Since coming back from injury he has seemed more focused.  He has always played at a really hard pace but he has really become more clinical in finishing since his return. 

What is also impressive is that he has reached #1 just before turning 30.  Ramy reaching #1 was almost expected.  He is young and so full of natural talent. It has been believed by many for the last couple of years that Ramy reaching #1 was just a matter of time.  I am not sure too many people would have picked Nick a couple of years ago to reach the top spot in the game.  It is great to see such a good work ethic and focus on a goal be rewarded.

Nick's rise to the top of the squash world is something we should all take note of - hard work and focus pays off.
