David and Grinham in Malaysian final

RESULTS: CIMB KL Open Squash Championships, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Women's semi-finals:

[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt Alison Waters (ENG) 9-6, 9-4, 9-4 (37m)

[2] Natalie Grinham (NED) bt Vanessa Atkinson (NED) 9-0, 9-7, 9-0 (30m)

The women's final will also boast domestic interest when defending champion Nicol David - in her fifth successive final - takes on great rival Natalie Grinham, the second seed playing in her first event under the Dutch flag.

The top semi-final in the women's WISPA Gold event saw Malaysian superstar Nicol David end the giant-killing run of unseeded English opponent Alison Waters - to mark up her 40th appearance in a WISPA World Tour final!

David dismissed Waters 9-6, 9-4, 9-4 in 37 minutes and is now in her fourth successive Tour final since November.

David's opponent Natalie Grinham also brought to an end a notable run by Vanessa Atkinson, the unseeded former world champion from the Netherlands who ousted fourth seed Tania Bailey and eighth seed Omneya Abdel Kawy.

But, in their first meeting since Grinham became a fellow countrywoman of Atkinson's, the former Australian won 9-0, 9-7, 9-0 in 30 minutes to set up a 29th Tour final appearance.

Remarkably, the women's climax will be David and Grinham's ninth successive meeting in a WISPA final since their memorable 95-minute clash in Belfast in the World Open final in November 2006.
