Meeting a World Champion

The latest leg of the Squash Tour, Malaysian Open 2007 is in town. Held at the Main Court of The Curve Shopping Mall, a majority of squash's elite dazzle the Malaysian crowd yet again after doing so last year at the Berjaya Times Square. For sure to attract the crowds is our very own 'pocket dynamite' Nicol David. Nicol showed why she's a class above the rest of the field last night playing against Egypt's Omneya Abdel Kawy. It took Nicol 27 minutes to register a 9-4, 9-3, 9-0 win to book her place in the Semi Finals. Her next opponent will be Rachel Grinham from Australia who also delivered a smilar ruthless display earlier to set up another enocunter.

Nicol in Action.

I had the privelege of meeting up with Nicol after the game and armed with a million dollar smile it's not hard to figure out why she's so charismatic and such a darling of the media.

Up close and Personal with a World Champion.

All the best to you Nicol.
