Najib Congratulates Nicol For Winning Malaysia Open

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 16 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Monday congratulated Datuk Nicol Ann David after she won the CIMB Malaysian Open Squash Championship for the eighth time.

The Prime Minister regarded Nicol's success in wresting back the championship from defending champion Raneem El Weleily of Egypt as something to be proud of.

"Congratulations to Nicol David for successfully wresting back the CIMB Malaysian Open Squash Championship. It's very heartening," said Najib through Twitter.

In the final at The Curve in Mutiara Damansara near here Sunday, Nicol recorded a straight set triumph of 11-8, 11-7 and 11-6 over Raneem.

The 30-year-old top seed took just 34 minutes to make up for her disappointment against the Egytian player who checked Nicol's seven consecutive years of domination of the championship last year.

In the 2012 edition, Nicol shockingly lost to Raneem, 24, who is third in the world ranking.
