Botwright defeats new World Champion

Vicky BotwrightEngland's Vicky Botwright scored one of the best wins of her career yesterday, defeating the newly-crowned World Champion Rachael Grinham in the quarter final of the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open 2007.

The 30 year-old from Manchester defeated her Australian oppontent 3-1 in just under an hour.

It was only Botwright's second win over the elder of the Grinham sisters ...

The world number 7's career has been consistent over the past three years, with Botwright cementing her position inside the world top 10 (highest position 5).

Though rarely troubling the top three of four in major competitions, Botwright has raised her game over the past 18 months, taking the title in Texas and reaching the finals of the Apawamis and Wolverhampton Opens.

She now meets Nicol David in the semis.
