Hong Kong Hat-Tricks For David

RESULTS: Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open Squash Championships, Hong Kong

Women's Semi-finals:

[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt [6] Vicky Botwright (ENG) 3-9, 9-3, 9-5, 9-0 (53m)

[2] Natalie Grinham (AUS) bt [5] Natalie Grainger (USA) 9-5, 9-3, 9-0 (27m)


[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt [2] Natalie Grinham (AUS) 9-3, 9-5, 10-8 (58m)

World number one Nicol David secured her third successive title in Hong Kong with a victory over the second seed in today's (Sunday) finals of the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open Squash Championships.


Nicol David continued the form which she showed last week by winning the Qatar Classic in Doha - putting behind her the disappointment of a second round exit in the World Open in Madrid. The 24-year-old from Malaysia defeated England 'giant-killer' Vicky Botwright in the semi-finals - then stormed to a 9-3, 9-5, 10-8 win over Australian Tour rival Natalie Grinham in a 58-minute final.

"It's just nice at the moment to be getting the results again," said David. "I've felt good all this week and last, and I just went in today to play my best. This is my last tournament of the year so I went in hoping for a good finish, especially after winning in Qatar last week.

"Three-nil doesn't show how intense the match was, Natalie's a strong fighter, you just have to keep going and hope to get the win."
