Injuries

Missed the 2015 Macau Open in September due to a calf injury. (psaworldtour.com, 12 Sep 2015)
Withdrew from the Malaysian Open Squash Championships doubles in December 2016, with a hamstring injury. (thestar.com.my, 15 Dec 2016)


Reason: "I was very hyper, so they would have to let me play. I may have snuck a racket in the house... played against the wall before I actually played. I was just happy to do something with the ball and racket." (excellesports.com, 8 Mar 2017)
Ambition: "I want to make it bigger within Malaysia first, and hopefully become an international hub one day. All the principles I learned, I can pass on to the next group of coaches to then take the next batch of kids." (excellesports.com, 8 Mar 2017)
