Malaysia’s Golden Girl

Nicol David the World squash third seed, beat fourth seeded Australian Natalie Grinham 9-6 9-7 9-6 to win the women's singles crown in the British Open final on Monday.

On the way to the final, she beat world number one Rachael Grinham of Australia in five games. She came from behind twice to beat the double defending champion Grinham 3-9, 9-7, 7-9, 9-4, 9-1 in 69 minutes.

FYI, Rachael Grinham is Natalie's sister.

In his letter to her, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi stated that "Saya amat tertarik dan berbangga dengan kejayaan Nicol (I'm thrilled and proud of your achievement, Nicol)."

Nicol who turned professional in 2000, is truly Malaysia's Golden girl.

Unfortunately Malaysians were sleeping at that moment and we didn't even get to see replays of the match on national TV or even on Astro.
