September - WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE MONTH

 

David wins Squash Player’s Player of the Month award

Malaysian icon Nicol David is Squash Player’s Women’s Player of the Month after marking her 35th birthday with a fifth Asian Games singles gold medal and her fourth in succession.

The former world no.1 and tournament favourite defeated team-mate and joint fifth seed Sivasangari Subramaniam 3/2 in a thrilling final in Indonesia to win the title 20 years after her first success in the event.

David had to fight back from 2/1 down to overcome the 19-year-old Subramaniam 11-13, 11-9, 5-11, 11-6, 11-8 in 52 minutes in her sixth successive Asian Games final.

The eight-time world champion has lost only once in the event – to Hong Kong’s Rebecca Chiu in the 2002 final.
