Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin was swept aside once again by arch-rival, Malaysian Nicol David, in the second round of the World Open in Manchester. David is determined to regain the world title and Chiu bore the brunt of her power as she won 11-3, 11-8, 11-7. Chiu (pictured) has never beaten David since her shock 2002 win in the Asian Games final in Busan and only troubled the world number one once during the third game when she led 6-3, but David regained her composure to make the last eight.
