Injuries

"Touch wood, I've been quite lucky throughout my career as I haven't had any major injuries. I have had injuries that would keep me out for a couple of weeks, like rolled ankles and small joint problems, but overall I have been fairly injury free." (commonwealthgames.com.au, 4 Oct 2017)


Reason: "My parents both played squash and would take me to the club when I was a baby. I was hooked from a very early age, then my parents bought Yamba Squash Club when I was about 10." (commonwealthgames.com.au, 4 Oct 2017)
Ambition: "I am edging towards the end of my career, so this could possibly be my last Commonwealth Games (Gold Coast 2018). That in itself is motivation enough to do well. But competing in Australia in front of friends and family is what really excites me." (commonwealthgames.com.au, 4 Oct 2017)
Influence: "I don't really have a mentor, but I do love watching athletes perform in their respective sports. I like seeing how they respond to different pressure situations. But Mark WAUGH (AUS) in cricket and Gustavo KUERTEN (BRA) in tennis were two of my favourites." (commonwealthgames.com.au, 4 Oct 2017)
Ritual: "The only thing I may do is if I play well in a tournament and keep on winning, I will tend to eat the same thing every day for the duration of the event." (commonwealthgames.com.au, 4 Oct 2017)
