Nicol David Retains Hong Kong Crown

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

 


 

 

Women's Final:

[1] Nicol David (MAS) bt [3] Rachael Grinham (AUS) 14-12, 11-13, 11-8, 11-8 (53m)

 



Nicol David, the world number one from Malaysia who is unbeaten since October last year, faced Australian rival Rachael Grinham in the climax of the women's $104,000 WISPA World Tour Platinum event.  But the game's dominant force of the era had to save four game balls in the opening game before converting her second to open up a lead against third seed Grinham.

 

But the 31-year-old Queenslander - in her maiden Hong Kong final - reasserted herself in the second to draw level, after another game which went into extra points.

 

David maintained the upper hand thereafter, however, as the 25-year-old from Penang marched to her 14-12, 11-13, 11-8, 11-8 triumph in 53 minutes to win the title for the third time in a row.

 

The success also extended David's winning streak to 53 matches - and brought her WISPA World Tour title tally to ten this year!
