4 December 2011 | Nicol David, the Malaysian who has topped the women’s world squash rankings unopposed since 2006, is to be feted by the country’s Prime Minister for her outstanding achievements.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will meet David at his office tomorrow (Monday) to congratulate the 28-year-old from Penang on creating history by winning a record sixth world title last month in the Netherlands.
Nicol David followed her World Open success in Rotterdam by claiming her 57th WISPA World Tour title at the Hong Kong Open—but still then found time to lead the WSF Ambassador Programme visit to Latvia at the end of November before heading home to Malaysia for an end-of-year break.
The country’s most successful squash player of all-time was greeted by hundreds of fans on arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport—all eager to see her world championship gold medal.
“I played my best match ever to win my sixth World title,” admitted David after her historic Rotterdam triumph.
“But I would happily trade all my six world titles for Olympic Gold.”
