By now, you’ve probably heard the news that national squash legend Nicol Ann David has announced her retirement. After 20 years of dominating on the squash court, our squash queen will be hanging up her racquet for good.
I’m truly happy and excited to be sharing with everyone that I’m retiring in June.
I’d like to thank everyone for supporting me and all your love in the last 20 years and it’s time for new and exciting opportunities to come. #thedreamremains pic.twitter.com/w3bH5tC2eg

In honour of her amazing career, her down-to-earth nature and general all-round awesomeness, we’re looking back at the times Nicol stole our hearts!
1. When she became the person to hold the world number one spot for the longest time ever
From August 2006 to September 2015, Nicol was the world number one before ceding it to Raneem El Weleily. That’s a whopping 9 years!
