Nicol Hopes To Bounce Back From World Cup Defeat By Winning British Open

KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 (Bernama) -- After suffering a major setback in the recently concluded Women's World Squash Championship at her own backyard, Malaysian squash queen and world number one, Datuk Nicol David aims to bounce back by lifting the 2014 British Open in May.

"I will do my best and work hard to prepare for the upcoming (British Open) in May because I do not want a repeat of what happened in the World Championship in Penang," she told reporters after conducting a squash clinic at the Squash Racquets Association of Malaysia (SRAM) here, Wednesday.

Nicol, 30, who was gunning for her eighth world title in the 29th CIMB Women's World Championship that was held at the Spice Arena in Penang, suffered a major disappointment when she was defeated by young Egyptian Nour El Sherbini in the semi-finals.

"I did not perform very well...I wanted to win a title but at the same time such losses will happen. For now, I just need to do what has to be done and work on things that I have to manage the next time," Nicol said.

Nicol has won the world title seven times before, namely in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.....
