Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 6, 2018: Malaysian icon Nicol David is Squash Player Magazine’s Women’s Player of the Month after marking her 35th birthday with a fifth Asian Games singles gold medal and her fourth in succession.
The former world no.1 and tournament favourite defeated team-mate and joint fifth seed Sivasangari Subramaniam 3-2 in a thrilling final in Jakarta, Indonesia, to win the title 20 years after her first success in the event.
David had to fight back from 2-1 down to overcome the 19-year-old Subramaniam 11-13, 11-9, 5-11, 11-6, 11-8 in 52 minutes in her sixth successive Asian Games final.
The eight-time world champion has lost only once in the event – to Hong Kong’s Rebecca Chiu in the 2002 final.
Nicol is already back in action, at the JP Morgan China Squash Open in Shanghai.
