Nicol David In Seventh World Heaven
22 Dec 12
The 29-year-old from Malaysia, who reached the final after dropping only one game, beat her third-seeded English opponent 11-6, 11-8, 11-6 in 44 minutes.
"Words can't describe how I feel right now winning this seventh World Open title," said David after her remarkable triumph. "Thanks to my team and all your wishes!"
The triumph brings Nicol's 13th year as a WSA member to a glorious climax: The World Open win is her eighth Tour title of the year and the 65th of her career. Next month, the Penangite will celebrate the seventh anniversary of her first topping the world rankings, in January 2006.
