Last year’s champion has been dethroned in this year’s semi-finals. After Malaysian Nicol David (pic ri) ended the run of the young Nour El Tayeb (pic le), when David beat the 17-years-old Egyptian in four games (11-7, 11-2, 5-11, 11-6). David will meet Australian Rachael Grinham in Qatar’s final, when Grinham came back from one game down to win against defending champion Jenny Duncalf (9-11, 11-5, 12-10, 11-5). Now it’s David and Grinham. David aims for her 50th overall title and Grinham for her 31st.
