Sivasangari aims to reach top 25 in the world by year end

PETALING JAYA: S. Sivasangari has a goal to realise before the year ends... to break into the world’s top 25.

And towards that end, the US-based player is aiming for a good outing in the DAC Pro Squash Classic which would help her tremendously to reach the objective.

Sivasangari, 22, currently training under former two-time world champion David Palmer from Australia, is now ranked 30th.

“But my target will also depend on how many tournaments I’ll be participating in until end of the year. I just want to be as consistent as I can for every match in every tournament because I feel that’s what I lack right now,” she said.

In her last competition which was at the US Open earlier this month, Sivasangari bowed out 12-14, 7-11, 4-11 to New Zealand’s Joelle King in the second round.

In the DAC event which starts today in Detroit, Sivasangari will open her campaign against Spain’s world No. 68 Cristina Gomez.

Since her US Open outing, Sivasangari has been working on the areas that she needs improving.

“I’ve been working more on my shot selections and accuracy. But the main thing is my consistency during the game, so I’ve been dealing with that with my coach.

If she gets past her opening match, she will face a stiff test in England’s world No. 18 Alison Waters.
