Career Overview[edit]

In 2003, Boswell had been ranked in the world's top-10 for two years and had reached a career-high ranking of World No. 4, when a mystery back ailment forced him to stop playing. He returned to the professional tour in 2005. On his return, he won six of the tour's lower-ranking tournaments in a row, and two further lower-ranking tournaments later in the year. He broke back into the world's top-20 in 2006 and the top-10 in 2007.

At the Commonwealth Games in 2002, Boswell won a Bronze Medal in the men's singles, and Silver Medal in the men's doubles partnering Anthony Ricketts. Boswell and Ricketts again won a men's doubles Silver Medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. The pair won the men's doubles title at the 2006 World Doubles Squash Championships.

After losing out to Gregory Gaultier during the 2011 Kuwait PSA Cup, Boswell announced he would retire from professional play.[1]
