What made David Palmer Great ?
Peter Nicol looks at the making of a fellow champion

Heading to Florida last week, I was really intrigued to hear what made David the player he was.

This was going to be the first time after years of fierce competition I would get the chance to hear how and what David worked on and could properly understand how he ticked, and after all this time,

I was fascinated. I imagined an incredibly hard worker with attention to detail being paramount, with a constant desire to get better.

Not that difficult to deduce considering David's style of play and hugely successful career, but I was more impressed than I thought I'd be with just how focused he was throughout his career.

Attention to detail:

I'd seen some squash sessions David had done with Shaun Moxham, his coach of many years. They were all about controlled practice at an incredibly high pace, moving in patterns and hitting targets with the ball.

David explained what the focus was in these sessions and also fleshed out how long and hard these sessions would last. The most striking aspect of these practices was the attention to detail and making sure that every shot and movement were exactly as he wanted.

The preparation of racquet head and body position meant that David was perfectly balanced and able to execute every shot well. He understood what needed to happen to gain the maximum consistency whilst also creating positions for shot options.

In the rest of the article Peter investigated the "killer" sessions David undertook with Sean, and how he developed and maintained his physical form.
