KUALA LUMPUR: Nicol David retained the Australian Open title after defeating England's Laura Massaro in the final in Canberra yesterday to remain unbeaten this year.
Six-time world champion Nicol displayed her tenacity in saving six
game points in the opening game before cantering to a 17-15, 11-2, 11-6 win in 44 minutes for her fifth WSA Tour title of 2012.
Laura's failure to close out the first game when she led 10-8,
11-10, 12-11, 13-12 and 14-13 appeared to demoralise the world No 4 as Nicol then raced to a 10-0 lead in the second game.
"I just knew I wasn't letting the first game go," said top-ranked
Nicol, who is unbeaten in 38 matches since last October, after her fourth win over Laura this year. "It was close, I'm just so glad to win it three-love."
Ramy Ashour claimed the men's title after winning an all-Egyptian
final against Omar Mosaad 11-9, 11-9, 11-6 in 53 minutes.
