Sweating Blood: My Life In Squash is the Official Autobiography of three time World Squash Champion Nick Matthew and is available exclusively from www.isportstore.com
 
You can’t sweat blood. That’s not physically possible, but if you could Nick Matthew would have done it by the bucket-load.
 
Throughout his 15-year career, Matthew has fought his way to the top of the PSA World Rankings in his gladiatorial sport, winning 25 World Tour titles, including being crowned world champion on two occasions and British Open champion three times. Nick holds the record of five British National titles in addition to being crowned Men’s Singles and Men’s Doubles Gold Medalist at the 2010 Commonwealth Games making him England’s most successful player.
 
Sweating Blood: My Life In Squash is much more than the tale of a squash player. In this brutally honest story:
 
Nick psychoanalyses his own obsessive-compulsive personality and explains how it helps him win;
 
He remembers how, as a late developer, he was constantly told he lacked the talent to succeed yet went on to become the most successful English player of all time;
 
He gives an amazing behind-the-scenes access to the sport: the prize money, the anti-doping, the gruesome training, the post-match celebrations, the crazy players on the PSA World Tour and the far-flung corners of the globe where he competes;
 
He remembers the career-threatening shoulder operation that eventually put him on the road to World Championship and Commonwealth Games glory;
 
He tries to understand how his relationship with another top British player went so horribly wrong;
 
He digs back into his Yorkshire upbringing and remembers the colourful characters who turned him into the champion he is today;
 
And he pinpoints the most crucial moments in his career – the moments when he really felt like he was sweating blood.
