Ambition: "I'll look for a top 10, then after that top four, then hopefully top one. I've had to reassess my goals. I got to where I am a lot quicker than I expected."​ (stuff.co.nz, 30 June 2017)

Additional information

WORLD CLASS
Became the first male New Zealander to rank inside the Professional Squash Association (PSA) world top 10 rankings since Ross NORMAN, in 1995. (stuff.co.nz, 1 Sep 2017)


TOUGH TIMES
While aspiring for a top ranking and the financial support that comes with it, COLL (NZL) relied on many for a place to sleep. "There's definitely been some really tough times where I've phoned mum back home and said 'I need some help, I'm really down'. There have been countless times where I've slept on people's couches when things haven't quite gone that well. It's definitely been a hard road." (stuff.co.nz, 30 June 2017)
