GLASGOW: Two-time champion Siti Zalina Ahmad’s dreams of a hat-trick of titles in the women’s singles competition at the Commonwealth Games have been dashed.
The seasoned campaigner was bundled out of the preliminary group stage after finishing a dismal fourth in Group B with just one win and three defeats.
Siti’s only win came against Hina Rereiti of Niue Island – winning 21-2 – on Saturday.
Siti lost her other matches to Nayanmoni Saikia of India 21-15, Carmen Anderson of Norfolk Islands 21-15 and Jo Edwards of New Zealand 21-17.
The national No. 1 had suffered back-to-back losses to unheralded Saikia Nayanmoni of India (21-15) and Norfolk Island’s Carmen Anderson (15-21) in her opening Group C matches at the Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre on Thursday.
Siti, who won the gold medal in Manchester (2002) and Melbourne (2006), will now focus on the women’s pairs with Norhahshimah Ismail.
Meanwhile, the men’s pairs are through to the next round after three straight wins in Group C.
Mohd Hizlee Abdul Rais and Fairuz Izwan Abdul Muin defeated Papua New Guinea 12-11, Northern Ireland 22-14 and Samoa 19-11.
