David and Grinham junior in KL Final

CIMB Malaysian Open Squash Championships, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Women's semi-finals:

[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt [3] Rachael Grinham (AUS) 11-3, 7-11, 11-1, 11-6 (43m)

[2] Natalie Grinham (NED) bt [4] Tania Bailey (ENG) 11-8, 11-7, 9-11, 11-5 (41m)

The final of the women's $53,500 WISPA World Tour Gold event will feature the top two seeds, with local heroine Nicol David now just one win away from her fourth title in a row. But the top seed and world number one from Penang was pushed to four games for the second successive day before beating career-long rival Rachael Grinham, the world champion from Australia, 11-3, 7-11, 11-1, 11-6 in 43 minutes.

David will now face another Grinham, Rachael's younger sister Natalie Grinham. The second seed stemmed a spirited comeback display by England's Tania Bailey before beating the fourth seed - playing her first event since undergoing knee surgery - 11-8, 11-7, 9-11, 11-5 in 41 minutes.

The final will mark the third meeting this year between the world's top two players - and the 19th of their careers, with the Malaysian boasting a 12-6 head-to-head advantage. But while David is recording the 43rd WISPA final of her career, Natalie Grinham is celebrating her 30th!
