TALKS TO FRAM
"For a game and a half I was outplayed by Shabana
completely...at 6/2 down in the second he made three errors
and gave me the little hope I can get back into this...I
felt I was a bit soft at the beginning of the match and I
needed to be aggressive so I can control the emotions I had
from becoming world number 1... Shabana length was just
unstoppable and I felt nervous and under pressure.
"I still can't believe I am world number 1 now... a lot of
people think when you get to world number 1 that you reached
the end of the ladder but for me this is just the 1st step
of the ladder as I am determined to achieve much more and I
am going to be working so much harder because I don't want
to just protect my ranking I want to also stretch it from
the other players.
"Still, I am not thinking about celebrating, all my thoughts
are for the World Championship in few weeks as I am not
going to let that title slip away from me this year.
"So happy I had my mum with me witnessing this moment
and of course I wish my dad and brother were there
"I would like to thank the University of the West of
England for their support to me for the past 5 years.
Also I want to thank Tecnifibre for their huge
support as they have been such a great family to me for the
past 8 years....I want to also thank my new sponsor Rowe for
supporting me so I want to thank Michael Zehe and
"At last but not least, this is the last month for
Claudia working for PSA and I told her before this
tournament that I really want to become world number 1
before she leaves and I am glad I did...I wish her all the
best and we will all really miss her as she has been so
great to us.
