Peter Nicol (Squash) talks about his 10 Commandments for Squash:
  • Know how to prepare
  • Excell in adversity
  • Appreciate what you are doing
  • Listen to everyone
  • Look your opponent in the eye
  • Look after yourself
  • Be yourself
  • Always finish
  • Be completely honest
  • Overtrain
Steve Backley (BritishTrac and Field) talks about "lessons I have learned":
  • Know your weaknesses
  • Take your choices
  • Be prepared
  • Pressure can be your friend
  • Have a goal
  • One man's sacrifice is another man's dream
  • Believe in yourself
  • Success and failure are not black and white concepts
  • Keep changing whether you win or lose
  • Don't get injured

Hi aprice,

I agree and i think just because Peter's a gentleman who seldoms argue and goes abt quietly, unlike J.P (John Mc of squash) who's loud and seem so unfriendly.

Two great sportsmen giving us all an idea of just how much effort and work it took them to get to the top, some very interesting point like always be honest, keep changing and the greyness of sucess.  The interview showed me a different side of Peter Nicol, the incredible mental toughness that was always talked about but also an incredible desire to win and yet he managed to do it and remain a top sportsman.  I do often find it interesting on a slight tangent that so few people seem to mention peter nicol on lists of worlds best squash players.  Jon Power often gets talked about as do a number of previous era players and of course the Khans and yet PN is i believe the third longest reigning number one.  Anyone any thoughts on why this might be the case.
