Matthew & Willstrop on the rivalry inspiring squash success
English squash duo Nick Matthew and James Willstrop are among the lead contenders for singles success at the Men's World Championships in Manchester 26 October - 3 November.
However, the pair - who have exchanged the world number one ranking several times during the last few years - have a far from harmonious relationship and share a rivalry which has been described as comparable to that of Lord Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett in the 1980s.
Willstrop, 30, is desperate to end a 15-game losing streak against Matthew, 33, who has won two previous world championship titles. They tell BBC Sport's Nick Hope about how their rivalry has inspired their respective success.
