Masters squash players made the country proud at the recently concluded 4th Asian Squash Masters 2019 at Hong Kong.
A total of 8 players represented Malaysia at age categories ranging from 40+ to 60+ across both men and women events from Sept 5 to 8, 2019 at the Kowloon Cricket Club.
Despite the uncertainties of Hong Kong’s political climate, Team Malaysia kept their focus to achieve 3 podium finishes.
National coach, Kenny Foo led the way, by winning all his matches on the way to the finals without dropping a single game, beating Saurab Nayar from India 3-0, to emerge the Champion for Men’s 40+.
Ex-national, Patricia Choong played gallantly to upset the 2nd seed, to compete in the finals of the Women’s 45+, but lost eventually 0-3 to first seed, Yoriko Michishita from Japan.
Ex-national champion, Tan Tian Huat, continued to recover his touch with every tournament, ending as 3/4 placing, losing 0-3 in the semis to eventual Champion Malcom Kerr, from Hong Kong in the Men’s 50+.
SRAM and the Masters Community Network, MySquashMasters would like to take the opportunity to thank all the players who participated, gave their best and represented Malaysia proudly.
