Wee Wern finally gets to play in pro tourney after more than a year

PETALING JAYA: All the waiting is finally over for Low Wee Wern (pic) as she gets ready for action in the SRAM PSA 1 from April 9-12.

The event at the National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil is the first professional tournament for Wee Wern since her last international stint at the Cincinnati Cup in Ohio in February last year.

And there could be more if she gets the clearance from the government to compete in the Manchester Open in mid April, British Open in June and the World Open in July.

And the 30-year-old Wee Wern is keeping her fingers crossed.

“The plan is to compete in the SRAM PSA meet, then off to Manchester if I get the approval. If all goes well with travel and quarantine, I will then head for the other tournaments, ” she said.

“The SRAM meet will be a good warm-up ahead of the Manchester trip, if approved.

“It’s just good to be back on court, it has been a while to say the least.”

While players from other countries have started to compete in professional tournaments, the world No. 24 Wee Wern said Malaysians would have some catching up to do.

“If I get to go for the international stint, the first thing is to focus on getting high quality matches against the top players, ” she said.

“The tournaments have started outside of Malaysia but we were not allowed to travel.

“Most of the players from other countries have been competing, so they have the advantage now.

“It will be good to go to Manchester and experience the procedure, guidelines and etc.

“It will help us with better planning ahead, ” said Wee Wern, who is hoping to take her squash game to a higher level this year.
