As Nicol David (pic le) lost last year’s Cleveland Classic against Laura Massaro (pic ri), this year’s victory was the revenge as the World No1 beat her English opponent this time 7-11, 12-10, 11-7, 11-8.

David’s victory brought down the number of tournaments she was unable to win to just one, the US Open. The English No2 took the 1st game, as David upped the pace to get the game under control and take her 59th WSA Tour title.
