Nicol and her shiney new trophy!

Nicol David beat Natalie Grainger in the final of the Texas Open 2009 to win her 36th tour title! The world No. 1 had a slow start, which enabled Natalie to take the first game with some good shotmaking. But when the “Malaysian Machine” got turned on properly in the second game, the tables turned and Nicol prevailed 7/11 12/10 11/5 11/6 in 39 minutes.Nicol will enjoy Texas for a bit, before returning to her home base in Amsterdam.

Nicol’s road to the finals:

Round 1: Beats qualifier Dominique Lloyd Walter (ENG), 11-6 11-3 11-4

Quarter finals: Beats 8th seed Isabelle Stoehr (FRA), 11-5 11-8 11-7

Semi finals: Beats 5th seed Jenny Duncalf (ENG), 11-4 11-3 11-6
