PETALING JAYA: Eight-time World Champion Nicol David lifted her first PSA World Tour title since December 2015 after beating Olivia Blatchford in the final of the inaugural Ciudad de Floridablanca tournament in Colombia.

The World No. 7 scored an empathic 11-3, 11-4, 11-8 victory over the American, ranked No 27 in the world, in 70 minutes.

“It feels great to win a tournament again,” Nicol told the Professional Squash Association (PSA).

“It’s been quite a while and I think this is really special to have my first title here in Floridablanca. It’s going to have a special place in my heart,” she added.

 Nicol has not won a title on the PSA Tour since the Hong Kong Open in 2015.

The Floridablanca win was Nicol’s 81st PSA Tour title in her 101st final.

It is certainly a big morale boost for Nicol who will next compete in the British Open in Hull from March 19-26.
