Inside Sport has a fantastic article about former squash world number one David Palmer’s training routines and match preparation.
Sometimes our matches go for 40 minutes, sometimes they go for two hours. You get a 90- second break between sets, so it’s not like tennis. I like tennis and I think tennis players are fit, but I definitely think squash is the harder game. I admire Rafa Nadal for what he did at the Australian Open, but the difference with squash is that during tournaments we don’t have days off between matches, so we play five days in a row, no breaks.
