How did you get into squash?
My mum played and gave squash lessons to little kids so I grew
up with it. Fell in love from the second I held a racket.
is your favorite squash achievement?
Winning the European Junior Championships in 2014 to end my
junior career and winning my first PSA event last September have
got to be my favourites so far.
What has been your favorite experience
involving squash outside a competition?
I can't pick one, I've had the best times of my life so far with
squash people. When players are out of a tournament they all get
together and go have an amazing time, that's what I love so much
about this sport.
is your favorite event?
The European team champs is definitely the most fun
When did you get involved with Team Harrow?
About two years ago. My coach is distributor for Harrow in
Belgium so I tried some rackets and they wanted to sponsor me.
I've always really liked the brand so I was happy I finally got
involved with them.
Harrow Racquet do you use and Why?
I'm currently using Jonathan Power's Spark. I really like this
racket because it's so light yet there's so much power and
touch. Hopefully I'll get my own signature racket some day haha!
do you like being involved with Team Harrow?
Harrow is so involved with their players and we get a lot of
support, we're like big family. Apart from that I just really
like the brand and their gear.
What are your goals in squash?
From the beginning my goal has been to be the best in the world.
you were not a professional squash player, what would have you
I probably would've just picked another sport, maybe tennis?
If you could see one thing happen or change in squash,
what would it be and Why?
I wish men and women would have all the same tournaments at the
same time, equal prize money, equal everything.
