السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
Squash queen Datuk Nicol David has earned accolades around the world for her amazing feats on the court. The 31-year-old Penangite made history yesterday as the longest-reigning squash World No. 1 ever.
Nicol, considered by some to be one of the greatest female squash players of all time, marked her 106th month as the world’s top ranked player in the February Women’s World Squash Rankings published by the Women’s Squash Association (WSA).
Having first headed the association list in January 2006, she overtook the 105-month record set in February 1993 by Susan Devoy, the four-time world champion from New Zealand.
Nicol’s bag of titles included a record eight World Championship titles, two Commonwealth Games gold medals and four Asian Games gold medals.
