Kiwi's conqueror bows out of squash worlds

11:50 am on 21 December 2012

The conqueror of New Zealand's leading squash player Joelle King has herself been beaten at the World Open in the Cayman Islands.

The veteran Natalie Grinham upset New Zealand's world number five Joelle King but was then on the receiving end of a straight games loss in the quarter-finals to Raneem El Weleily from Egypt, the number two seed.

Malaysia's six-time champion Nicol David dropped a rare game but was still largely untroubled in moving through to the semis.
