Biography: 2013 Hong Kong Open runner-up, Borja Golan has fought through a serious knee injury, sustained in 2009, to emerge as Spain’s greatest ever Squash player.
The injury was sustained in the Columbian Open final, which he went on to lose to David Palmer. Despite this, the Spaniard climbed into the top 10 the month after the tournament had come to a close.
He would have to wait until 2013 before he could rank as highly again when he reached the semi-final of the Qatar Classic that year.
In December 2013 he finished runner up to Nick Matthew in the Hong Kong Open and his current world ranking of World No.5 is a career high.
