The expected date arrived, and the best squash player in the world, Nicol David, originally from Malaysia, was presented at the Stadium of Tlalpan Villas of the National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport, alongside the best player of Mexico, Samantha Teran.

"It's exciting to see so many girls follow in the footsteps of Samantha," said Nicol David at the squash courts of CONAD.

"I think it is very important to be in an event like this, especially with Samantha. She has always invited me to come to your country and I am glad to be here in Mexico, "added the Malaysian goodwill ambassador for the UN.

For his part, Teran Quintanilla said, "Seeing so many girls gathered here, it motivates me as a player."

The six times Pan American Games medalist said that his intention was "to convey what I experienced, while playing with the best in the world, I hope that this is the beginning to bring more events of this quality."

On the other hand, Jorge Camacho, Assistant Director General for Sport Quality of CONAD, said "Mexico has the number 20 player in the world, I think that bringing the number one player to play against our best will motivate more girls to pick up a racket and take interest in this sport. "

The manager, who shared the excitement of the public who packed the stands, said "Samantha deserves much, as her achievement in squash has shown that one with discipline and tenacity can accomplish great things."

Both players met the expectations of attendees, showing the best of their techniques in the exhibition match which extended from 3 to 5 sets, then played alongside the six best junior players, and answered questions from the audience.
