San Francisco: Dipika Pallikal's fine run at the Oracle NetSuite Open ended with a crushing semifinal defeat at the hands of Malaysia's eight-time world champion Nicol David here on Friday.

Nicol outclassed Dipika 11-3, 11-0, 11-5 in just 22 minutes.

Nicol was in charge of the proceedings right from the start as she glided around court and gave Dipika no chance to launch any kind of attack.

Dipika found some of her range in the third game, but could not do anything to break Nicol's dominance. Nicol will take on England's world No. 6 Sarah-Jane Perry, who knocked out top seed and defending champion Laura Massaro in Thursdays semifinal, in the title clash.

"She's a dangerous player so I needed to be sharp from the word go. The court really worked for me today and I found my lengths, I found my volleys and I was really pleased to win 3-0 and the way I played," Nicol was quoted as saying by the PSA World Tour website.
