NSC Series #6 2009
06-11 Jul, Kuala Lumpur, $16k+$10k

"It was a tough match and I had to play well to fight back from two games down. I feel I am mentally fitter and stronger now.

"On a personal note I would like to thank my coaches at ISA -- Major Maniam and Cyrus Poncha, the Mittal Trust, the boys and girls who train with me at the academy and my parents for all their support.

"Now I want to maintain my winning run to break into the top 20 WISPA rankings soon."

11-Jul, Finals:

[4] Joshna Chinappa (Ind) bt [3] Low Wee Wern (Mas)
      7/11, 7/11, 11/8, 11/5, 16/14 (51m)
[1] Jan Koukal (Cze) bt [2] Yasir Butt (Pak)
      9/11, 15/13, 8/11, 11/9, 11/5 (82m)

Chinappa comeback
foils Wee Wern

A fine fightback from Joshna Chinappa foiled hopes of a home victory in Kuala Lumpur, as the Indian number one recovered from two games down to Malaysian teenager Low Wee Wern, to eventually triumph 16/14 in the fifth!

The victory marks Chinappa's third WISPA title, both her previous wins coming in NSC series events last year.

The men's final was also a five-game affair, with top seed Jan Koukal coming from 2/1 down to beat Pakistan's second seed Yasir Butt.

10-Jul, Semis:
Low marks Tour high in KL

Teenager Low Wee Wern survived the longest match of her career to reach the biggest WISPA final of her life when she upset top-seeded fellow Malaysian Delia Arnold in the semi-finals  at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

Third seed Low, the reigning Asian Junior Champion, stemmed a fight back by Arnold event to beat her higher-ranked compatriot 11-9, 14-12, 8-11, 7-11, 11-5 in 80 minutes.

The 18-year-old from Penang - now in the seventh final of her career - will face India's Joshna Chinappa, the fourth seed who also recorded a notable five-game upset by beating second-seeded Malaysian Sharon Wee 11-6, 8-11, 14-16, 11-8, 11-8.

"It was a close match! I started off well, winning the first two games, but Delia fought back to win the next two. In the deciding game, I managed to take a 6-3 lead. That put pressure on her game and her challenge fizzled out.

"I am happy to have reached the final. I have a score to settle with Joshna, who beat me twice in the finals of the NSC Series tournaments last year ... I hope to be third time lucky."

Chinappa, the 22-year-old world No41 from Chennai, is celebrating her eighth WISPA final - and her third in Malaysia against Low Wee Wern.

By contrast, there were no surprises in the men's event which will climax in a final between the two top seeds.

Second seed Yasir Butt despatched fellow Pakistani Waqar Mehboob, the No6 seed, 11-6, 11-3, 11-7 while Czech favourite Jan Koukal put paid to an all-Pakistan final when he battled to a 46-minute 11-8, 7-11, 11-9, 11-3 victory over eighth seed Arshad Iqbal Burki.


09-Jul, Quarters:
Malaysians Crash Out In KL

Pakistanis led a wholesale rout of Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur today  where all four local players competing in the men's quarter-finals failed to make it through to the semi-finals at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in the Malaysian capital.

Eighth seed Arshad Iqbal Burki claimed the biggest scalp the 25-year-old from Peshawar beating KL-based third seed Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan 13-11, 3-11, 11-8, 11-9.

Nafiizwan's unseeded brother Nafzahizam Adnan was also a casualty, going down 11-5, 11-7, 16-14 to sixth-seeded Pakistani Waqar Mehboob.

A Pakistan finalist is assured as Mehboob, 17, from Peshawar, takes on compatriot Yasir Butt in the semis. Second seed Butt defeated Malaysia's No7 seed Muhd Asyraf Azan 14-12, 14-12, 12-10.

By contrast, three Malaysians will line up in the semi-finals of the women's event.

Top seed Delia Arnold despatched Welsh opponent Deon Saffery 11-6, 11-4, 11-2 and will now face Low Wee Wern in an all-Malaysian semi. Third seed Low beat fellow countrywoman Lim Yoke Wah 11-2, 11-4, 13-11.

India's Joshna Chinappa stands in the way of an all-Malaysian final. The fourth seed from Chennai defeated Canada's Miranda Ranieri 11-8, 13-11, 11-9 and will now meet second-seeded Malaysian Sharon Wee for a place in the final. Wee took out Siti Munirah Jusoh 11-8, 8-11, 11-2, 11-7.

08-Jul, Round One:
Adnan Brothers through to KL Quarters

Malaysia's Nafzahizam Adnan scored a surprise first round win in the NSC Series No6 championship in Kuala Lumpur to join his third-seeded younger brother Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan in the quarter-finals at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in the Malaysian capital.

Nafzahizam Adnan, 24, from KL, defied the PSA world rankings by upsetting Ritwik Bhattacharya, the fourth seed from India ranked more than 50 places higher, 7-11, 12-10, 12-14, 11-4, 11-5 in 56 minutes.

Higher-ranked Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan was also taken to five games by an Indian opponent before prevailing 11-8, 11-7, 6-11, 9-11, 13-11 over 20-year-old qualifier Harinder Pal Sandhu.

There was further unexpected local success in the men's event when Elvinn Keo overcame Pakistan's No5 seed Khawaja Adil Maqbool 13-15, 11-7, 12-10, 12-10. The unseeded 21-year-old from KL will now line-up against top seed Jan Koukal, the Czech number one who defeated Malaysian Ivan Yuen 11-6, 11-9, 11-9.

There were no surprises in the women's event, with five local players claiming their anticipated places in the last eight. Top seeds Delia Arnold and Sharon Wee are on course to meet in an all-Malaysian final.

Arnold, the event favourite, brushed aside Singapore qualifier Pamela Chua 11-3, 11-3, 11-5 while Wee wiped out fellow countrywoman Rachael Goh, also a qualifier, 11-4, 11-9, 11-5.
