KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's world No. 1 Nicol Ann David continued her impressive form in the British Open squash championships by booking a semi-final berth on Friday.


This was after Nicol easily dumped sixth seed Joelle King of New Zealand in the quarter-final 13-11, 11-8, 11-1 victory in just 35 minutes at Hull and East Riding Squash Club, Hull City.

"I just did what I had to do. It was very close in the beginning, and on that cold court, her shots were working very well for her," Nicol to the competition's official website.

"So I had to be sharper at the end of the game. It's so nice to be back in the semis of the British Open, it's such a knowledgeable crowd, that knows what it is to be on court and appreciate
good squash."

The 29-year-old, who is gunning for her fifth British Open title, is scheduled to take on fourth seed, Alison Waters of England or Kasey Brown of Australia in the semi-final on Saturday.

Nicol has won the British Open four times - in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2012.
