A determined Jenny Duncalf of England wants to become the first player to beat Malaysian Nicol David this year when the world's two best players meet in the final of the Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open at Plaza Hollywood, Diamond Hill, today. Not only does Duncalf, the world number two, want to win the title in her first Hong Kong Open final, the Englishwoman is also eager to end David's five-year unbeaten run in the city. The men's final will feature number two seed Ramy Ashour of Egypt and Frenchman Gregory Gaultier, who is making his fourth consecutive Hong Kong final after losing the previous three to another Egyptian, Amr Shabana. Gaultier had already made up for those defeats by ousting Shabana in the quarter-finals on Friday. 'I am not here to make up the numbers, I am here to win it,' said Duncalf, who thrashed compatriot Alison Waters, the fourth seed, 11-4, 11-4, 11-7 in yesterday's semi-finals. 'It is obviously going to be difficult in the final as Nicol is the best player right now. 'But nobody is perfect and there are always weaknesses.' Duncalf is the last player to beat David, doing it twice in consecutive tournaments in November last year. 'I lost 3-2 to her when we last met in the Malaysia Open last month, but I have also beaten her a couple of times,' said Duncalf. 'There has been a big gap between Nicol and the rest of the world, but it has got a little closer over the past 18 months. I am here trying to close that gap even more.' David, who will be making her sixth final in Hong Kong since winning the World Open in 2005, encountered a tougher semi-final against third seed Rachael Grinham of Australia but still ran out an easy 11-9, 11-9, 11-5 winner. 'Maybe she [Grinham] is not as agile as she used to be. Still the first two games could have gone either way, so I'm just happy to have won it in straight games,' David said. David, who has now won 24 matches in Hong Kong without a defeat, still feels excited about being in the final. 'I will not be looking at how long I can stay at the top. I just want to make sure I eat well, rest well and get ready for my next match. It is always one step at a time,' she said. In the men's semi-finals, Gaultier cruised to an 11-7, 11-3, 11-5 win over Peter Barker of England, while Ashour conceded one game before overcoming compatriot Karim Darwish 11-5, 1-11, 11-9, 11-7.
