KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian squash queen and world number one Datuk Nicol David (pic) is just a step away from winning the Cleveland Classic title after marching into the final on Monday.
According to the website, www.squashsite.co.uk, the 29-year old player was given a tough fight by eighth seed, Madeline Perry of Ireland before registering a 11-6, 11-7, 4-11 and 11-7 win in the semi-final, held at the Cleveland Racquet Club in Ohio, the United States.
