GEORGE TOWN: World No. 4 Alison Waters feels that playing in front of the home crowd in the 29th Women’s World Squash Championship can be a double-edged sword for seven-time champion Nicol David.

The English player, who is likely to take on Nicol in the semi-finals, made the comment after trying out the newly-assembled glass court at the SPICE Arena in Penang, which will host the meet from Tuesday until Sunday.
