Malaysian David wins British Open

6:35 am on 21 May 2012

Malaysia's world No.1 squash player Nicol David has regained the British Open title with an 11-6 11-6 11-6 win over the youngest-ever finalist, 16-year-old Egyptian Nour El Sherbini.

The teenager managed to upset three higher seeded players en route to the final, but against the most experienced and highest profile woman player of them all, however, it was never likely she would cause a sensation.

It's David's fourth British Open title, and repaired the damage inflicted by a shock defeat to Madeline Perry of Ireland in the last British Open, three years ago in Manchester.

David beat New Zealand's Joelle King in the quarter-finals in London.
