She may just be 30 years old but she is arguably the most dominant Asian sportsperson in the world.
David began her professional career in 2000 and has already reached 90 Tour finals, won seven World Opens and has not relinquished her hold over the top ranking since August 2006.
The Malaysian is a force of nature in the world of squash and is perfect in nearly every respect. She has great technique, cat-like reflexes and superb stamina and has not lowered her standards since winning her very first title in her debut month back in February 2000 as a precocious 16-year-old.
Such is David's supremacy that long-time rival Natalie Grinham has said: “Nicol has proved that she is the best in the world. So all you can do is to try and make her work as hard as possible to beat you."
The Penang native is also a strong believer in squash's claim for a place in the Olympics and was a prominent campaigner for Squash2020. Ultimately, her best efforts were for naught as the sport lost out to wrestling in the end.
In 2013, David was at her effervescent best as she won five titles and she is just 16 months short of eclipsing Susan Devoy's 105-month streak at the top of world squash.
But it is likely a matter of how and not when David takes that record and her nickname of 'Duracell Bunny' aptly describes the tenacity of her sporting career.
She goes on and on and it would not be a surprise if her 30s are equally laden with silverware as the past thirteen years have been.
