Nicol David Celebrates Maiden Triumph In Mexico
Malaysia’s Nicol David moved ahead of her Tour title tally in 2009 when she picked up her eighth WISPA World Tour squash trophy of the year by beating Australian rival Rachael Grinham in the final of the inaugural Women’s Torneo International Bicentenario Mexico at the Plaza Civica de Toluca in Toluca.
Unbeaten in any event so far in 2010, the world number one from Penang arrived in Mexico fresh from her maiden gold medal success in the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
And in the first WISPA Gold event ever to be staged in Mexico, David notched up her 34th successive match win with a 12-10, 11-4, 11-5 victory over world No5 Grinham in 35 minutes.
“As with the semi-final, it was important to win the first game as I know how dangerous Rachael can be and I just had to keep getting her shots back,” explained David after recording the 49th Tour title success of her career.
“It has been great to have so many Mexican fans here, and I want to thank everyone that has been involved in the event as it is fantastic – the setting, the crowds and everything,” continued the 27-year-old.
“I had been talking to Samantha (Teran) about getting an event here and now she has made it happen. I played an exhibition with her here two years ago and I could see the enthusiasm then, so I knew it would be a fun event for all the girls.”
Grinham, the former world number one from Queensland who has now faced the Malaysian 31 times over the past ten years, was upbeat after the match: “It’s nice to get to a final again, and I am motivated at the moment and want to keep enjoying my squash so hopefully there will be some more.”
“Nicol has proved she is the best in the world, so all you can do is to try and make her work as hard as possible to beat you.”
