Nicol David eases into World Series final
LONDON - Seven-time world champion Nicol David (pic) eased into the title match at the World Series Squash Finals on Saturday with an 11-5, 11-8 win over France's Camille Serme.
The world number one, who won the tournament in 2012, will face England's Laura Massaro in Sunday's final in a repeat of the pair's World Open final showdown won by the Malaysian star in the Cayman Islands last month.
Massaro overcame compatriot Jenny Duncalf 6-11, 11-8, 11-9 in her semi-final.
"In our pool match, Laura was playing better on the day. She's a tough player but I just know that as the week develops you feel better and better," said Nicol, who had been surprisingly beaten by Massaro in a round-robin match on Thursday.
"I'm looking forward to playing the final and putting it all out there."
In the men's event, England's Nick Matthew was facing French world number four Gregory Gaultier in his semi-final while James Willstrop takes on Egypt's Amr Shabana. - AFP
