Asal is a solid athlete and squash player. Some may say that he's a borderline phenom. But, there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the way he plays. Many dislike his on-court antics; his path of movement to and from the ball/shot, how he ‘uses’ his trailing leg, holding/pushing his opponents, and on-court celebrations.
