A and As


Q: Who was your first coach?
A: My very first coach was my dad along with his friends in Deep River.  Then a great guy named Vihar Joshi coached me until I started working with Heather Wallace in Ottawa.

Q: Where do you train?
A: I train in Toronto, at the National Squash Academy and the Granite Club.  There are tons of great players around who are always looking for a game.  The squash scene in Toronto is excellent.

Q: What are your goals for your career in squash?
A: I am looking to do the best I can, for as long as my body holds up!  As I'm sure everyone else on the WSA tour will say, I want to win the World Championship.

Q: What is your proudest moment of your career so far?
A: The best ever was standing on the podium with my teammates at the Pan Am Games in Guadalajara.  Oh Canada!

Q: What do you like most about being a squash pro?
A: Being able to eat anything I want.  And travelling.

Q: What do you like least?
A: Jet lag!

Q: What will it mean to you if squash gets into the Olympics?

A: Everything!  I watch the Olympics and cry when people win, and cry when people lose.  I know all squash players can relate to the sweat and blood that athletes put into their sport.  I want to have that ultimate feeling of representing myself and my country at the ultimate sporting event.

Q: Where is your favourite place to travel to?
A: Ridiculously hard question to ask of someone who likes travelling!  I honestly don't think I can pick one, although must say World Open in Cayman was brilliant this past season.  

Q: How often do you train in a week?
A: I do anywhere from 1-3 sessions a day, 6 days a week.

If you have any other questions please get in touch here, I'd love to hear from you
