Coconut water or Gatorade

Coconut Water!
I phone or Android

Iron Man or Captain America

No, thank you.
Beach vacation or ski vacation

Ski vacation.
Federer or Nadal

The ball-rotation Nadal gets on his forehand, more than 3000 rpm, is out of this world and unmatched by anyone.
Tiesto or AfroJack

They're both too commercial for me. I'm more into underground deep-house.
Ferrari or Porsche

Porsche, because I feel you could still get around without everyone staring at you.
Jennifer Lawrence or Scarlett Johansson

Jennifer Lawrence seems like a fun girl to hang around with.

On the other hand I wouldn't necessarily mind playing Bill Murray's part in Lost in Translation spending time with Scarlett in Tokyo.

Bear in mind, that's also because I've never been to Tokyo.
Twitter or Instagram

I'm leaning towards instagram at the moment.
Snooker or Darts

New York City or San Francisco

San Francisco.

#1: Nele Gilis

How did you get into squash?

My dad was twelve-time national champion and took me to the squash court when I was 5 years old.

Why did you want to be a professional player?

Back in the day I was lucky enough to have two great role models at my local club in The Hague.

Perhaps Billy Haddrell and Johnny White were not your traditional kind of role models but as I kid I really looked up to them. They played a spectacular game of squash and were the coolest guys around. I wanted to be like them.

Who has been the biggest influence in your squash career to this point?

Apart from my dad, it would be Neil Harvey. He was my coach for five years when I lived in the UK and still consider him my mentor.

What has been the most memorable experience in your squash career?

That one week in 2005 when I beat Peter Nicol and John White in head-to-head tournaments Chicago and Dayton. I was 22-years old and was in the zone!

How did you become a member of Team Harrow?

I'd always been interested in Harrow, being a cool, young American brand with the possibility to make your own custom-made rackets.

What racket do you use and why?

I use the Stealth. Because it just feels... right!

Where is your favourite place to play?

Peshawar, Pakistan. Contrary to what people may think, I really like the food there.

If there was one thing you wanted to change in the squash, what would it be?

I wouldn't change a thing. The game is awesome the way it is.
