Ng Eain Yow bowed out in the last 16 of the World Championships in Cairo on May 14.

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s campaign at the World Championships in Cairo came to an end when the nation’s top squash duo Ng Eain Yow and S. Sivasangari crashed out in the last 16 stage in Cairo on Tuesday.

World No. 18 Eain Yow suffered a 9-11, 4-11, 6-11 defeat to world No. 2 Paul Coll of New Zealand in 39 minutes.

Sivasangari’s objective of repeating her London Classic victory over women’s world No. 3 Hania El Hammamy of Egypt did not materialise as she went down 13-15, 6-11, 5-11 in 44 minutes.

The Malaysian world No. 13 had beaten El Hammamy in the final of the London Classic to win her first Professional Squash Association (PSA) gold level tournament on April 1.

The tournament’s only major upset was created by the unseeded Fayrouz Aboelkheir, the world No. 19, as the Egyptian toppled world No. 4 Nele Gilis of Belgium 11-8, 11-7, 7-11, 11-5 to reach the quarter-finals.
