It was mixed fortunes for squash players S. Sivasangari and Noor Ainaa Amani Ampandi in the World Championships when the former made it safely into the second round while the latter crashed out. World No. 13 and CIMB Foundation sponsored squash player Sivasangari Subramaniam had an easy start when she swept aside Latvia's Ineta Hopton 11-6, 11-8, 11-8 in her opening match in Cairo on Friday (May 10). The 25-year-old, who is hoping to become the first Malaysian since the legendary Datuk Nicol David to reach the quarter-finals, will play either United States' Caroline Fouts or Canada's Nicole Bunyan on Saturday (May 11) for a place in the third round. National coach Ajaz Azmat was satisfied with Sivasangari's performance. Meanwhile, there was good news though in the men's event when CIMB Foundation sponsored squash player world No. 18 Ng Eain Yow stormed into the second round after upstaging world No. 16 Frenchman Baptiste Masotti 11-9, 11-8, 11-5. The 26-year-old will play Japan's Ryunosuke Tsukue next and has a good opportunity to make it into the third round.
