Ankle injury during the British Open in March 2016. Knocked out in the second round of competition and sidelined until May 2016, returning at the PSA Dubai World Series Finals. (psaworldtour.com, 19 Sep 2017)


Reason: "I started with tennis. They came round to my school to give us lessons and I enjoyed that, but I had to walk past some squash courts to get to the club. One Saturday morning I said to my dad I wanted to try out squash and soon I was hooked. My tennis career stalled after that." (theguardian.com, 7 Mar 2014)
Ambition: "The (Gold Coast) Commonwealth Games. It's one of my favourite events ever and I'll be doing everything in my power to win a fourth gold medal." (insidethegames.biz, 18 Sep 2017)

FLAGBEARER NERVES
At the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the nerves he felt carrying the baton were matched by one other moment. "That event and my wedding were the two things I’ve been most nervous for. It felt like I had to lead the team from the front. There was no point being a flagbearer if I wasn’t going to win a medal." (gc2018.com, 16 Dec 2017)
