Nicol Bags Cleveland Classic Open For Second Title Of The Year

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 5 (Bernama) -- Malaysian squash queen and world number one Datuk Nicol David continued her all conquering impressive run after clinching the 2014 Cleveland Classic Open held at the Cleveland Racquet Club, Ohio, United States.

The 30-year old Penangite who recently claimed the Tournament of Champions (ToC) title in New York, brushed aside surprise finalist, Annie Au of Hong Kong 13-11, 11-5, 11-6.

On her victory, Nicol who is also the seven-time world champion said she was satisfied to bag her second title, this season.

"It's a great feeling that you can't describe it to people. The hard work in training pays off on the court," she said as quoted in the tournament website www.squashsite.co.uk.

For the record, Nicol had won the same tournament back in 2012 besides emerging runner-up in 2011 and 2013.

The victory also marked Nicol's 73 title in 92 appearances in the final and took her unbeaten run to 35 matches and underlined her eighth consecutive tournament win.
