KUALA LUMPUR: National squash player Ng Eain Yow has lived up to his billing as the top seed by stepping into the final of the Ohana National Squash Championships. 

The 21-year-old looked comfortable as he beat Addeen Idrakie 11-6, 11-5, 11-2 in the semi-final at the National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil here on Saturday (July 20).

“It looked easy, but I had to put in a lot of effort to play at a high pace to make it difficult for Addeen, and I think in the third he got a bit tired,” said Eain Yow. 

Eain Yow is on the hunt for his first national title, and he will be up against two-time champion Ivan Yuen in the finals tomorrow. 

Ivan beat Darren Rahul Pragasam 13-11, 11-9, 11-9 in the semi-final. 

“I think for Ivan, it's one of his favourite tournaments, and he will be going in with a lot of confidence.” 

“So I have to be on watch, and if I can win my first title I’d be really happy.” 

In the women’s final, former world No. 5 Low Wee Wern will play Rachel Arnold.
