It’s Waters next for Sivasangari after first-round cruise in Detroit

PETALING JAYA: National women’s No. 1 S. Sivasangari got off to a winning start in the DAC Pro Squash Classic in Detroit.

Sivasangari took just 26 minutes to beat world No. 68 Cristina Gomez 11-9, 11-7, 11-6 to clear her first-round hurdle on Tuesday. The Indonesia Asian Games silver medallist will face England’s world No. 18 Alison Waters for a place in the quarter-finals.

Sivasangari is currently training in the United States under former two-time world champion David Palmer from Australia.

The 22-year-old has set her sights on breaking into the top 25 by end of this year and a good outing will help her achieve her objective.

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.
