REPORTS

Unseeded Duo Of Singh And Azman Victorious



After a week of surprises in Negeri Sembilan, two unseeded players got their hands on the trophies at the Challenger 10 level tournament, with Indiaís Abhay Singh and home favourite Aira Azman coming out victorious, the latter claiming her first Tour title.

Azman came into the womenís event as part of the 9/16 bracket, and was expected on that bracket that she would only reach the second round of the competition, but that would not be the case, as she came through, taking down the top two seeds en route to victory.

After beating wildcard Abhitha Shanraj in the opening round, Azman then took on the tournamentís top seed, Chan Yiwen, and she ate from behind to win the last two games to defeat the World No.77. The Malaysian then also went to five n the quarter finals as well, downing Egyptís Nour Heikal to make it through to the last four of the competition.

The World No.102 overcame the challenge of compatriot Ainaa Amani in a four-game contest in the semis, before then taking down the No.2 seed, Egyptís Salma Eltayeb in the final. She dropped the first game, but the Malaysian fought back to win in four to claim her first Tour title.

The menís event was also won by an unseeded player, as Indiaís Abhay Singh came through the field to clinch his second title of the 2021-2022 season. The Indian, who currently sits at World No.160, started with a win over Malaysiaís Duncan Lee, before then overcoming the tournamentís No.7 seed, Ibrahim Elkabbani, in straight games to reach the quarter finals.

The Indian then came from behind to defeat No.4 seed Mohammad Syafiq Kamal in four games, before getting the better of another Malaysian, in Sanjay Jeeva, who had downed the tournamentís top seed. Singh defeated Jeeva in straight games to set up a meeting with No.2 seed Ivan Yuen in the final.

Singh took the early lead in the contest after winning the first game on a tie-break, but saw the current World No.54 fight back. The same pattern followed over the next two games, with Yuen recovering from going a game down for a second time, before both men had their chances in the deciding game. It went to a tie-break, and eventually it was the Indian that took it 13-1, to win after 80 minutes of action, to claim his second victory of the campaign.
 
Unseeded Singh And Azman Make Finals


Aira Azman Right

Both of the finals at the Tuanku Muhriz Trophy will feature an unseeded player after a week of shocks, with Malaysiaís Aira Azman and Indiaís Abhay Singh both advancing to the last day of the Challenger 10 level competition.

Azman continues to delight the home crowd in Negeri Sembilan, and she came up against compatriot Ainaa Amani, who had also caused some upsets this week. The pair were level after two games, but from there on, it was Azman that took charge, winning both of the third and fourth games by a scoreline of 11-6m to advance to the final on home soil.

She will now face No.2 seed Salma Eltayeb in that final on Saturday afternoon, after she got the better of compatriot and No.3 seed Malak Khafagy, also in four games. Eltayeb held a two game lead, before her fellow Egyptian won the third on a tie-break, but she regrouped to advance to the final in four.

The menís final will see Abhay Singh take on Malaysiaís No.2 seed Ivan Yuen, after the unseeded Indian got the better of Malaysiaís Sanjay Jeeva in straight games. Jeeva had taken down the top seed Tayyab Aslam a day earlier, but seemed slightly fatigued coming into the semis, with Singh able to power through to the match, winning in half an hour. He will now face Malaysiaís Yuen in the final, after he won in straight games as well, defeating Pakistanís Amaad Fareed.

The finals of the Tuanku Muhriz Trophy will take place at the Royal Seri Menanti Golf & Country Club, with Aira Azman and Salma Eltayeb meeting in the womenís finale, before Abay Singh and Ivan Yuen do battle in the menís match. The action will be streamed live on the PSNS YouTube channel
 
Jeeva Downs Top Seed To Make Semis

A day on from seeing the womenís top seed being knocked out of the compeittion, the shocks and surprises continued at the Tuanku Muhriz Trophy on Thursday, with the menís top seed bowing out at the quarter final stage.

Malaysiaís Sanjay Jeeva caused the major upset of the third dayís play in Negeri Sembilan, getting the better of the tournamentís top seed, Pakistanís Tayyab Aslam, in a five-game battle that lasted almost 90 minutes.

The pair were in action in the first menís match of the day on Court 1, and it was Aslam, the World No.49, who took the early lead by winning the first game 11-7. The Pakistani then led again after winning the third game on a tie-break 15-13, but from there, Jeeva was able to control the match. He won the fourth 11-7 to level the match, before the Malaysian then also took the deciding game by the same scoreline to make his way into the last four of the competition.

Jeeva will now face the unseeded Abhay Singh, after the Indian also caused an upset in the quarter finals, beating No.4 seed Mohammad Syafiq Kamal. He dropped the first game 11-9, but fought back to win the next three, two on tie-breaks, to advance to the semi-finals in Negeri Sembilan. The other menís semi-final will see Pakistanís Amaad Fareed take on No.2 seed Ivan Yuen.

Meanwhile in the womenís event, there will be an unseeded player in the final, as both Aira Azman and Ainaa Amani made their way into the last four. Amani got the better of the No.4 seed Nardine Garas in four games, while Azman downed Egyptís Nour Heikal in a five-game battle to make her way into the semis.

The bottom half of the draw sees No.2 seed Salma Eltayeb and No.3 seed Malak Khafagy face off in tomorrowís line-up, with the Egyptian duo both coming through their last eight matches. Eltayeb downed Malaysiaís Yee Xin Yang in straight games, while Khafagy got the better of Yasshmita Jadishkumar.

The semi-finals of the Tuanku Muhriz Trophy will take place on Friday, July 1 at the Royal Seri Menanti Golf & Country Club in Negeri Semiblan, Malaysia, with all the action being streamed live on the PSNS YouTube channel.
Busy Opening Day In Seremban

The opening day of the Tuanku Muhriz Trophy was a busy one, with 16 matches taking place across two courts at the Royal Seri Menanti Golf and Country Club in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.

The Challenger 10 level menís and womenís tournament got underway, and there were some shocks as unseeded players made it into the second round of the competition.

In the menís draw, Malaysiaís Amir Amirul took on compatriot Elvinn Keo, and although the former World No.91 was able to fight back after going behind twice in the last match to be played on Court 2, it was Amirul that took the victory in the fifth games, claiming the decider 12-10 to book his place in the last 16, where he will now take on No.2 seed Ivan Yuen.

The other surprise result in the menís event saw Indiaís Rahul Baitha get the better of Malaysiaís Wee Ming Hock. The 21-year-old from Thane won in straight games over the home hope, to advance to the second round, where he will now face No.5 seed Addeen Idrakie.

A pair of Malaysians also caused surprises in the opening round of the Challenger 10 womenís event, with You Jie and Yasshmita Jadishkumar making it into the last 16. The latter defeated Aika Azman in straight games, while Jie defeated Maisara Azlan, also in three.

The second round of the Tuanku Muhriz Trophy will take place on Wednesday, June 29, with the seeded players coming into the tournament for the first time. All the action will be streamed live on the PSNS YouTube channel.
