Long-awaited comeback for former world No.
5 Low Wee Wern

The Ohana 34th National Squash Championships that is held at the National Squash Centre, Bukit Jalil from July 4-8 will serve as the long-awaited comeback for former world No. 5 Low Wee Wern.

The 27-year-old Penangite has yet to play in any competitive tournaments for the last 20 months since a series of complicated knee injuries.

Wee Wern first suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in 2015 and sat out for nearly a year only to have her first comeback cut short with a second injury.

Wee Wern, who was finally been given the green light by the National Sports Institute (NSI), is however relieved that injury woes are at last a thing of the past.

Now ranked No. 260 in the world, Wee Wern is looking for a strong showing at the national meet as she also looks to secure a place at the Jakarta Asian Games from Aug 18-Sept 2.

ďThe 2016 national championships, where I lost to Delia (Arnold) in the final, was my last competitive tournament. It is only fitting that this is the tournament that I make my return,Ē said Wee Wern, who was national champion in 2012 and 2014.

ďOf course itís going to be tough because I havenít played for almost 20 months and itís not easy getting back into tournament mode.

ďMy main focus now is really to get back out there and start again and hopefully my knee holds up well.Ē

Wee Wern, who is desperate to earn a ticket to the Asian Games, having missed out on the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast earlier this year, will have a tough run to reach the final in the womenís Premier division.

Despite being seeded second, she will face young promising players - Zoe Foo in the first round and then a likely quarter-final clash with world No. 103 Ooi Kah Yan.

If she gets past the pair as expected, she is expected to meet the very talented 16-year-old Aifa Azman in the semi-finals.

National No. 2 S. Sivasangari is the top seed and is drawn to meet joint third-fourth seed Rachel Arnold in the other semi-final.

All four players - Wee Wern, Sivasangari, Rachel and Aifa - are in the running to secure one of the two slots alongside eight-time world champion Datuk Nicol David for the individual event of the Asian Games.

ďIím probably not in the best condition for a selection trial but Iíll just have to do my best,Ē said Wee Wern.

ďItís also interesting that Iím playing all these younger girls. It will be my first time taking them on in a competition.Ē

In the menís Premier division, national No. 1 Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan is seeded to win his third national crown.

His challengers will come from national No. 2 Ng Eain Yow, defending champion Ivan Yuen and talented left-hander Mohd Syafiq Kamal.

Besides the menís and womenís Premier division, other categories in the national meet are the menís and womenís Division 1, menís Masters over-35, over-50 and over-60 categories.

There is also a newly minted Squash57 category featuring an open division for over-40, over-50 and over-60 age-groups.
