PETALING JAYA: World No.1 Nicol David got the better of England's Alison Waters in the quarter-finals of the US$150,000 (RM543,000) Windy City Open in Chicago on Monday.

Another Malaysian entry, Low Wee Wern however suffered a 9-11, 11-6, 11-3, 11-9 defeat to world No. 2 Raneem El Welily of Egypt in the quarter-finals.
