The two Malaysians Nicol David and Azlan Iskandar made it a good day for the home fans in Kuala Lumpur. The victories in the finals have been contrasting. Iskandar was all time in control over qualifier Tarek Momen, while David has been under massive pressure. Her opponent, the no.2 of the world Jenny Duncalf fought 72 minutes before David claimed her 6th successive Malaysian Open title. After 2004 and 2007 Iskandar won his 3rd title and earned his 1st PSA victory of the year.
