David & Darwish Conquer In KL


Favourites Nicol David and Karim Darwish emerged triumphant in today's CIMB KL Open Squash Championships finals in Berjaya Times Square in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.


It was a glorious home success in the women's WISPA World Tour Gold event in which Nicol David, the world number one from Penang, was celebrating her eighth successive appearance in the final.


The defending champion was facing surprise opponent Madeline Perry, the seventh seed from Ireland whose semi-final success over Hong Kong's Annie Au took the world No6 into the 20th Tour final of her career.


But David, spurred on by her loyal home crowd, was too strong for Perry – and romped through to an 11-6, 11-6, 11-2 victory.


The win marks David's seventh KL Open title since 2000 – and the 51st Tour title of her career.


By contrast, the final of the men's PSA World Tour International 50 event featured the top two seeds – Darwish and fellow Egyptian Mohamed El Shorbagy, the second seed.


El Shorbagy, the 20-year-old world No9, was marking only his fifth appearance in a PSA Tour final, while his more experienced fellow countryman Darwish, the 29-year-old former world number one, was celebrating his 33rd.


But El Shorbagy made the top seed fight for 52 minutes before world No3 Darwish, last year's runner-up, eventually prevailed 11-9, 11-9, 11-3 to celebrate the 20th Tour title of his career.

Nicol David Makes Eighth Consecutive KL Climax


Top seed Nicol David confidently reached the women's CIMB KL Open Squash Championships final for the eighth year in a row after beating English rival Alison Waters in straight games in the semi-finals of the WISPA World Tour Gold squash event in Berjaya Times Square in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.


Londoner Waters was making her WISPA Tour comeback in KL after a five-month absence following Achilles surgery.  The world number five had reached her second successive KL semi after battling to a five-game win over Australia's former world number one Rachael Grinham.


But Malaysia's world number one was too strong for Waters as David despatched the third seed 11-4, 12-10, 11-5 in 36 minutes.


It was the end of the road for Hong Kong's unseeded Annie Au in the other women's semi-final.   The 22-year-old world No11 had upset France's No8 seed Camille Serme, ranked two places higher, in the previous round.


But Ireland's Madeline Perry, the seventh seed from Belfast, was determined to make her maiden KL final, and beat Au 11-4, 5-11, 11-8, 12-10 in 62 minutes.


The men's PSA World Tour International 50 event will climax in an all-Egyptian final between favourite Karim Darwish and second seed Mohamed El Shorbagy.


In only his third time in the KL championship, world No3 Darwish celebrated his second successive final appearance after beating French qualifier Gregoire Marche 11-6, 11-5, 11-3.


Marche, the world No72 from Aix-en-Provence, had enjoyed one of the best Tour runs of his career in the Malaysian capital where he made his breakthrough in the opening round with a stunning straight games defeat of Australia's third seed Cameron Pilley.


But hopes of a third KL Open title for local hero Mohd Azlan Iskandar, the fourth seed from Kuala Lumpur, were dashed by young Egyptian Mohamed El Shorbagy.  The 20-year-old world No9 from Alexandria recovered from a game down to beat 28-year-old Iskandar, ranked a single place lower, 8-11, 14-12, 11-7, 11-5 in 64 minutes.

Marche Marches On In KL


French qualifier Gregoire Marche produced his second upset in 24 hours in the CIMB KL Open Squash Championships when he beat South African Stephen Coppinger to reach the semi-finals of the men’s PSA World Tour International 50 event in Berjaya Times Square in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.


After ousting third seed Cameron Pilley in the opening round, the 21-year-old world No72 from Aix-en-Provence dug deep to overcome Coppinger, ranked 33 places higher, 11-7, 11-5, 11-8 in 39 minutes.


Marche will now face his toughest opponent in KL, the event’s top seed Karim Darwish.  The world No3 from Egypt moved one match away from his second successive final with a hard-fought 11-8, 11-8, 11-5 victory over India’s top-ranked player Saurav Ghosal.


Mohd Azlan Iskandar made sure of home interest in the last four of the men’s event when he beat Pakistan’s Aamir Atlas Khan 14-12, 11-6, 11-2. 


The fourth seed from KL, winner of the title in 2003 and 2006, will now face second seed Mohamed El Shorbagy in a bid to avenge his compatriot Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan’s defeat by the Egyptian.


Unseeded Adnan, who like Iskandar is also from KL, went down 11-9, 12-10, 11-7 to El Shorbagy in his first appearance in the championship’s quarter-finals.


Malaysian interest rides high in the women’s WISPA World Tour Gold event where defending champion Nicol David edged closer to her eighth successive final.  The world number one from Penang repeated her 2010 Commonwealth Games semi-final win over Australian Kasey Brown when she beat the sixth seed 11-5, 11-4, 6-11, 11-5.


Title-holder David now faces England’s Alison Waters, the No3 seed from London who is making her WISPA Tour comeback in KL after Achilles surgery following the Commonwealth Games. 


Waters was taken the full distance by fifth seed Rachael Grinham before beating the 2001 champion 12-10, 12-10, 8-11, 5-11, 13-11 in a 65-minute marathon.


There was a notable upset in the lower half of the draw where Hong Kong’s unseeded Annie Au took out France’s eighth seed Camille Serme 11-3, 15-13, 9-11, 11-6.


Now in her the last four for the first time, 22-year-old Au will take on Madeline Perry, the No7 seed from Ireland who despatched Hong Kong qualifier Joey Chan 11-7, 12-10, 11-5.


Qualifiers Chan & Marche Shine In KL


Qualifiers Joey Chan and Gregoire Marche led a flurry of upsets in today’s first round of the CIMB KL Open Squash Championships in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.  The established international Tour event is celebrating its sixth successive year sponsored by CIMB.


Joey Chan, the lowest-ranked player in the women’s WISPA World Tour Gold event, produced a sensational performance to oust Egypt’s fourth seed Omneya Abdel Kawy 11-5, 12-10, 11-7 in just 32 minutes.


The fast-rising 22-year-old, ranked 29 in the world, will now face Madeline Perry, the seventh seed from Ireland who battled for 72 minutes to overcome Mexican qualifier Samantha Teran 15-17, 11-4, 11-8, 11-6.


Incredibly, all but three of the women’s first round matches took an hour or more to resolve:  Fifth seed Rachael Grinham, the 2001 champion from Australia, took 70 minutes to overcome unseeded Malaysian Low Wee Wern 11-5, 11-4, 6-11, 9-11, 11-6 – equalling the time it took France’s No8 seed Camille Serme to beat another Malaysian Delia Arnold, a qualifier, 7-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-7.


It was a hugely disappointed second seed Jenny Duncalf, from England, who was forced to withdraw from the tournament as a result of a groin strain sustained in last week’s World Cup in India. 


Egypt’s Heba El Torky stepped into the breach as ‘lucky loser’ – and immediately stretched world No11 Annie Au to five games before the 22-year-old from Hong Kong prevailed 10-12, 11-1, 11-6, 8-11, 11-3.


A day after making history by being voted ‘Malaysian Sportswoman of the Year’ for a record eighth year, Nicol David successfully began the defence of her title with an 11-8, 11-8, 11-8 win over English qualifier Sarah Kippax.


The world number one from Penang is seeded to reach the final for the eighth year in a row – and win the title for the seventh time since 2000.


Frenchman Gregoire Marche pulled off the biggest upset in the men’s PSA World Tour International 50 event.  The world No72 from Aix-en-Provence – again, the lowest-ranked player in the draw – ousted Australia’s third seed Cameron Pilley 14-12, 11-8, 11-1 in a 50-minute clash.


The 21-year-old goes on to face Stephen Coppinger after the South African also upset the form book by beating Egypt’s former world No13 Mohammed Abbas 10-12, 11-3, 13-15, 11-5, 11-8.


Malaysian interest in the event is shared between Mohd Azlan Iskandar and Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan.  KL-based fourth seed Iskandar, winner of the title in 2003 and 2006, was handed a passage through to the last eight after his Pakistan opponent Farhan Mehboob retired injured with the score in the first game standing at 9-9.


Unseeded Adnan, also from Kuala Lumpur, celebrated his first quarter-final appearance in the event at his third attempt after overcoming Egyptian qualifier Ali Farag 11-8, 9-11, 11-8, 11-9.


Adnan, the world No47, takes on Egypt’s second seed Mohamed El Shorbagy, while Iskandar, the new world No10, faces unseeded Pakistani Aamir Atlas Khan.


Top seed Karim Darwish had to fight back from a game down to beat Germany’s Simon Rosner 12-14, 11-5, 11-8, 11-6.  The world No3 from Cairo, runner-up in 2010, will now line up against India’s Saurav Ghosal for a place in the semi-finals.
