CIMB Malaysian Open Squash Championships, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
 Nicol David (MAS) bt  Tania Bailey (ENG) 9-4, 9-3, 9-2 (36m)
Remarkably, the 23 year-old from Penang was appearing in her 14th successive Tour final since reaching her first World Open climax in Hong Kong in December 2005.
Her surprise opponent Tania Bailey, the fourth seed from England, had stunned observers in the previous round by beating Australia's No2 seed Natalie Grinham in straight games.
But the Lincolnshire lass was unable to match the fire-power of the local heroine as David took just 36 minutes to win 9-4, 9-3, 9-2 and claim her country's prestigious Open title for the third time in a row.
The title success brings David's WISPA career tally to 20 titles - equalling the current haul of Dutch rival Vanessa Atkinson, but still three behind Australia's Rachael Grinham, her opponent in the KL semi-finals.
