Nicol David Celebrates Malaysian Title

CIMB KL Open Squash Championships, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Women's final:

[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt [2] Natalie Grinham (NED) 9-4, 9-2, 9-2 (35m)

Nicol David provided the perfect result for their home nation by winning the women's CIMB KL Open Squash Championships at Berjaya Times Square in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.


Nicol David, the world number one from Penang, was celebrating her 40th appearance in a WISPA World Tour final in the climax of the WISPA Gold event in KL. Furthermore, the 24-year-old defending champion was facing long-time rival Natalie Grinham in their ninth successive meeting in a WISPA final.

But David, unbeaten since October, was too strong for the former Australian who was competing in her first event since switching allegiance to the Netherlands, where she has been based for the past nine years.

Nicol David stormed to a 9-4, 9-2, 9-2 win in just 35 minutes - not only picking up her fifth KL Open crown since 2000, but also bringing her WISPA trophy haul to 26, just one Tour title shy of Rachael Grinham, Natalie's older sister who boasts 27.
