New World order: Nick Matthew is the 3rd English no.1 in total. Only Peter Nicol and Lee Beachill have achieved this before. Lee Beachill was the last one – from October 2004 to December 2004. Matthew may enjoy the position now during his holidays in Mexico. “It means I can put my feet up for a few weeks and then come back refreshed and ready for the new challenge of holding on to the top spot. When I come back I will be reassessing my goals – and becoming World Champion and winning Commonwealth gold will be very high on the agenda”, Matthew said to World Squash Media Director Howard Harding.
