Sivasangari improves ranking after good Singapore outing

Comfortable victory: Rachel Arnold powered past Toby Tse in the Hong Kong Open yesterday while S. Sivasangari is only starting her campaign today.

PETALING JAYA: Asian Games champion S. Sivasangari’s hopes of making a return to the world’s top 20 received a major boost following her good show in the Singapore Open last week.

Sivasangari overcame Egypt’s world No. 7 Nour El Tayeb before losing to former top five player Sarah-Jane Perry of England in the quarter-finals but it was enough to move up seven rungs to No. 22.
