Malaysians crash out of world meet

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s hopes of going far in the World Championships in Chicago were dashed as all four remaining players crashed out of the second round.

In the women’s category, Low Wee Wern failed to continue her fine form as she lost to home player Olivia Clyne 9-11, 11-4, 9-11, 8-11 yesterday.

Olivia will face an uphill battle in the third round where she will play the seeded Camille Serme of France after the latter eliminated Australian player Donna Lobban 11-9, 11-3, 11-3.

S. Sivasangari, 22, was then knocked out by Belgian player Nele Gillis 6-11, 10-12, 11-3, 11-13.

Gillis will face Egypt’s fourth seeded player Hania El Hammamy in the third round.

Another Malaysian, Rachel Arnold, failed to build on her first set win as she was ousted by Nadine Shahin of Egypt with a score of 14-12, 11-13, 4-11, 7-11 in the second round.

Malaysia’s sole survivor in the men’s category, Ng Eain Yow, lost to top seed Ali Farag of Egypt 11-6, 11-9, 11-5.

Ali will next play Miguel Rodriguez of Colombia, who easily beat unseeded Swiss player Dimitri Steinmann 11-9, 11-7, 11-4. — Bernama
