Looking forward: S. Sivasangari’s next mission is the Women’s World Championships in Cairo, Egypt, from Oct 24-Nov 1.

PETALING JAYA: National squash player S. Sivasangari’s good run at the US Open came to an end but not after making a statement that she has what it takes to be just like Nicol David.

The 20-year-old put up a valiant fight before going down 12-10, 9-11, 6-11, 12-14 to England’s world No. 7 Sarah-Jane Perry in 48 minutes in the third round of the platinum level event in Philadelphia on Monday.
