Sure or not?
The Wadi Degla Women’s World Squash Championship (December 12–20, 2014) in Cairo, Egypt has so far, gone well for Malaysians Nicol David and Low Wee Wern.
On Monday, David delivered a routine yet ruthless performance to down world No. 39 Egyptian Yathreb Adel 11-9, 11-6, 11-3. But on the next day, David’s next challenger Emily Whitlock gave her a good workout before she prevailed 12-10, 11-9, 11-1 over the English player (above photo).
Low Wee Wern had tough matches. Both times, she had to come from behind before she won over her opponents. She survived a five-game battle (9-11, 11-7, 9-11, 11-7, 11-2) against Guyana’s Nicolette Fernandes. Then another five-game encounter (6-11, 11-3, 11-13, 11-7, 11-8) against India’s Joshana Chinappa (above photo).
For a long time, it’s been only David in the last eight – so it is great that now Low joins David in the quarter-finals! Go for it, girls!
