Injuries

Hip soreness began in March 2014, identified as "the layer of cartilage in the hip had worn thin and was arthritic". Started thinking the injury might force retirement, which meant presuming he would miss the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. Visited a hip specialist, who provided a plan of rehabilitation and painkilling injections, allowing him to participate in Glasgow. (theguardian.com, 20 Jan 2015)


Additional information

GLASGOW
WILLSTROP (ENG) lost the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games men's singles gold medal match to long-time rival, Nick MATTHEW (ENG), but wasn't sad. "I was so thrilled to have been a part of Glasgow and that final was so special in view of the whole (injury management) process." Also won bronze in the men's doubles, with Daryl SELBY (ENG). (theguardian.com, 20 Jan 2015, glasgow2014.com, 23 Jan 2018)


STREAK BROKEN
Nick MATTHEW (ENG) held a 10-year, 19-match winning streak against WILLSTROP (ENG), until they met at the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions in 2017. "It’s just not all about him. Beating Nick is not what I’m waking up to achieve. It’s about, 'Have I given my best?' and 'Am I healthy?' If I’d have played well, entertained the Grand Central crowd and lost that match, it would have been fine. I realise and understand why it captures people's imagination – the needle, the rivalry. We need more of all that stuff. He’s been a great champion and I’ve genuinely enjoyed those intense occasions with him." (eurosport.com, 16 Jan 2018; psaworldtour.com, 25 Oct 2017)
