“I’m definitely disappointed with my performance but I need to remain positive and look forward as there are plenty of other challenges awaiting me,” the 32 year-old told Utusan Malaysia.
The world number 5 went on to confirm that she will not be retiring from squash anytime soon and even proclaimed that she’ll be competing in the Hong Kong Open soon.
