JENNY DUNCALF will be out for revenge when she takes on Malaysian Nicole David in the quarter-finals of the women's singles squash tournament at the Commonwealth Games.
Duncalf, who is from Harrogate, booked her place in the last eight with a comfortable 11-4, 11-5, 11-7 win over Canada's Sam Cornett earlier today.
That victory set up a last-eight meeting with David, who beat her in the final at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi to prevent her claiming the gold medal.
Tomorrow's meeting could go a long way towards determining who claims the Commonwealth title this time around, with Duncalf keen to turn the tables from four years ago.
"I’m playing Nicole next, who I lost to in the final last time," she said. "It’s a bit earlier in the tournament now.
"At the moment I’m not too bothered about results, as long as I perform well and feel like I have done myself justice, hopefully the result will take care of itself.
"I feel physically I have got as good a chance as I have done for a while. I’ve played a lot more squash in the last five weeks and I just feel my timing, and hitting and shot selection is a lot more second nature."
It certainly looked that way this afternoon as Duncalf disposed of Cornett in a fairly perfunctory fashion.
"I’m pretty pleased," she said of her performance. "I’ve not played Sam before so I didn’t want to take her for granted at all, she’s a good player.
"I started off quite well and managed to keep my focus, I didn’t give her any errors and I was moving well."
