Malaysia’s World No1 Nicol David (ri) ended unseeded French star Camille Serme’s (le) giant-killing run in the final of the Carol Weymuller Open in New York to win the event for the 2nd time since 2005.

The match notched up David’s 9th successive Tour win over the world No10 from Creteil – but Serme had enjoyed a sensational run in only her 3rd appearance in the event, upsetting higher-ranked English opponents Alison Waters, Jenny Duncalf and defending champion Laura Massaro in quick succession.

“I’m just so happy to win this tournament after so long,” said David after the 12-10, 11-2, 11-5 triumph which saw the 30-year-old from Penang go through the championship without dropping a game.

“I’m a bit disappointed to be honest,” said the 24-year-old France and European champion. “Even though she’s the world number one I wanted to do better than getting one game as that’s the best I have done against her!
