“All my life, that’s what I’ve wanted to do – hit that ball,” said Hashim Khan, one of the sport’s all-time greats.
Khan recently took a tumble on the court, fracturing a hip and straining a rotator cuff. Doctors have said no more squash.
He refuses to listen.
Even at 93, Khan can’t bring himself to lay down his racket – he simply loves the game too much.
And squash – a game similar to racquetball – has given him so much in return. He’s travelled the world, found fame by winning seven British Open titles and become a national hero in Pakistan, his homeland…. He also started a stretch during which he or a member of his family won 13 straight British Open championships, considered the most prestigious squash tournament.
