Sivasangari skips injured Egyptian Elhammamy, but world No. 3 Gohar awaits

Tough challenge: S. Sivasangari will face Nouran Gohar (inset) in the second round of the El Gouna International today.

KUALA LUMPUR: World No. 13 S. Sivasangari’s expected showdown against Hania ElHammamy at the El Gouna International will not materialise after the Egyptian world No. 2 withdrew due to injury.

However, there will hardly be any respite for Sivasangari as a redraw was done and she will now face world No. 3 Nouran Gohar, also from Egypt, in the second round today.
