England’s top squash player Nick Matthew (pic) returns home just shortly before Xmas with two Commonwealth Games gold medals in his pocket; becoming England’s first world champion; and clinching 7 major Tour titles in 2010 which will ensure his status as the world number 1 in January. “The biggest thing that hit home after my triumph was that I had become the first Englishman to have won it,” said Matthew. “That’s something that nobody can take away from me forever. It’s been a dream year,” admitted Matthew, looking back at his successes. “They were my goals at the beginning of the year and I set my sights high, so to have achieved all three is amazing – something that was perhaps more of a dream goal rather than a realistic one! Now I can’t wait to catch up with all my close friends and family, and all those people who have supported me over the years. These are the people I’m dying to see and say thank you to – over a beer or two!” Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all squash fans.
