|Datuk Nicol David overjoyed with her 5th World Open squash title|
Datuk Nicol David did Malaysia proud again by winning the 2010 World Open squash title. Malaysian sports superstar Datuk Nicol David has equalled the record of five World Open squash titles held by Australia's Sarah Fitz-Gerald.
Datuk Nicol David cruised to a 11-5 11-8 11-6 victory over Egyptian fourth seed Omneya Abdel Kawy in Wednesday's final crushing the home crowd's hopes of a win.
It was the latest chapter in the 27-year-old's illustrious career, which was marked earlier this month by her 50th successive month atop the world rankings.
"My focus was strong throughout the tournament," said David after the successful defense of the title in which she did not drop a single game.
"I really wanted this. I didn't want to let it slip.
"It's amazing that I can do something that Sarah has done, because she's such a great player."
David, now the winner of 48 WISPA World Tour titles from 63 finals, will now fly to Delhi for the Commonwealth Games as overwhelming favourite to capture the only significant title missing from her collection.
Good luck for the upcoming Commonwealth games, we are proud of you Datuk Nicol Ann David.
