PETALING JAYA: It’s second time lucky for national squash player Chan Yiwen as she booked her spot in the World Championships next month.

After missing her chance to play in the world meet last year, world No. 79 Yiwen made sure she wasn’t going to let it happen again by defeating compatriot K. Sehveetrraa 11-6, 11-3, 11-3 in the Asian Qualifiers final at the Jalan Duta courts yesterday.
