All over for our squash players

PETALING JAYA: It was the end of the road for the Malaysian challenge in the Squash on Fire Open in Washington.

Addeen Idrakie, who chalked an upset win over seventh seeded Shahjahan Khan of the United States to reach the last eight, failed to repeat his heroics when he fell 2-11, 6-11, 7-11 in 33 minutes to top seed James Willstrop of England.

National No. 2 Ivan Yuen also failed in his bid to reach the last four. Ivan was already trailing 7-11, 11-13 when he retired from the quarter-final clash against Japan’s Ryosei Kobayashi.

Low Wee Wern, the only remaining Malaysian woman player left in the fray, failed to clear her last eight hurdle as well.

The national No. 1 went down 7-11, 12-10, 10-12, 7-11 to fourth seed Sabrina Sobhy of the US.
