Aifa again fails to make breakthrough

PETALING JAYA: World No. 30 Aifa Azman (pic) has been playing well over the last three months but is still finding it hard to keep up, much less beat, a top five player in the world.

Aifa went down 11-8, 11-2, 11-6 in 23 minutes to American Amanda Sobhy in the second round of the Tournament of Champions (TOC), a platinum level tournament, in New York on Friday.
