|Egyptian squash legend, Amr Shabana, holds aloft the US Open trophy in 2009|
This week I had the privilege of sitting down with Egyptian squash legend, Amr Shabana. I have never met anyone with such a record of achievement in the game (look him up if you don't know the name, in which case where have you been(!)) and so I was a little nervous asking some of these questions as I was not exactly sure how Shabana would respond. I was very relieved that Amr is not only a genius on the squash court but he is also a total gentleman, a great conversationalist, and has a real love for squash that is conveyed in the passion with which he speaks about the game. Oh, and he knows more about the history of the international game than anyone I have ever met. Hands down.
