Malaysia’s Nafiizwan Adnan has announced his retirement from professional squash.
The 33-year-old from Kuala Terengganu began his career on the PSA World Tour in 2003 and captured 11 titles from 24 finals, winning 262 of his 450 matches.
Known on tour as ‘Komodo’, Adnan also made history in 2018 as he became the first male Malaysian squash player to claim a medal at the Commonwealth Games, capturing a bronze medal in the singles event.
The former World No.26 has moved back to Kuala Lumpur from Manchester, England and is now looking to settle down with his wife, Aufa, and start a family.
“I feel that in order for me to improve my squash, I needed to be based overseas,” Adnan told Squash Mad’s Alex Wan.
“With us moving back to Kuala Lumpur, I didn’t believe that it would be any better than it already is.
“My wife and I are also looking to start a family. We’ve been married for more than five years now, and with us being based out of Kuala Lumpur and still playing on the tour, I would hardly get much time to spend with Aufa and our families.
“For now, I want to enjoy the moment. I want to spend time with my family and friends. I have some offers, but I am taking time to consider them before making a decision [on his next steps.”
