KUALA LUMPUR: It was a dismal day, as three national squash players failed to enter the finals of the Asian Squash Championships at the National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil here on Saturday (May 4).

In the women's event, former world No. 5 Low Wee Wern, who returned in July last year from a serious knee injury that saw her sidelined for 20 months, fell 6-11, 13-11, 11-13, 4-11 to world No. 11 Annie Au of Hong Kong.

While S. Sivasangari could not get the better of world No. 15 Joshna Chinappa of India. The Malaysian fell 7-11, 10-12, 3-11.

To make matters worse, men's player Ng Eain Yow was outclassed by world No. 10 Saurav Ghosal of India in a  2-11, 6-11, 4-11 defeat.

The finals tomorrow will see Hong Kong's Leo Au match up against Saurav Ghosal for the men's title, while Annie Au will take on Joshna Chinappa for the women's title.
