RESULTS: Qatar Squash Classic, Doha, Qatar
 Nicol David (MAS) bt  Natalie Grainger (USA) 9-6, 9-4, 10-9 (43m)
Nicol David confirmed her status as the world's number one squash player by winning the Qatar Classic titles in style in Doha - David retaining the $77,000 women's WISPA Gold event trophy by defeating fifth seed Natalie Grainger in straight games.
Nicol David's win was a massive confidence-booster for the Malaysian who crashed out of the second round of last month's World Open in Madrid, thereby failing to reach the quarter-finals of a WISPA World Tour event for the first time in more than three and a half years.
The 24-year-old from Penang was in sparkling form as she despatched Grainger, the Pan American Games gold medallist from the USA, 9-6, 9-4, 10-9 in 43 minutes.
"It's good to start winning again," said David after picking up the 23rd Tour title of her career.
