Home’s where the heart is as Yiwen feels good about chances of earning World C’ships spot

PETALING JAYA: Chan Yiwen, after narrowly missing a spot in the World Championships last year, believes the home ground advantage and her recent encouraging performance will give her a better chance of making her debut in the major tournament next month.

Yiwen, the world No. 79, was unlucky to be upstaged by her junior compatriot J. Yasshmita in the World qualifiers in Birmingham and missed the ticket to the main event in Chicago where eight Malaysians saw action.
