Calf injury forces Nicol David to miss Macau Open
By Squash Mad Reporter
Malaysian World No.2 Nicol David has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming Macau Open, PSA W50 tournament, due to a calf injury.
The 32-year-old was recently dethroned from the World No.1 spot following a nine-year streak atop the world rankings and her injury setback assures Egyptian Raneem El Welily of maintaining the top spot for a second consecutive month.
As a result of David’s withdrawal England’s Laura Masaaro now occupies the number one seeding with Egypt’s Nour El Tayeb seeded second for the event which gets underway on Thursday September 17.
