01 Dec Andrea aims to make winning comeback
It’s not easy to pick yourself up after a long injury layoff.
And squash player Andrea Lee (pic) knows that. That’s why she just wants to get back on the court after missing almost three months of action since picking up an ankle injury during the semi-finals of the Asian Junior Championship in September.
Having said that, the world No. 103 has also set herself a lofty target of going for a fourth straight Under-19 title in the Redtone KL Junior Open, which will be held at two venues – National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil and Jalan Duta Squash Centre at Kuala Lumpur – from Dec 6-11.
“I just recovered last week and resumed full training on Monday. It’s tough trying to come back from a long layoff,” said the 17-year-old.
“I definitely feel the pressure as the tournament is so near, but I believe I can make it to the semi-finals … that’s when the real challenge begins.”
With top junior and world No. 51 S. Sivasangari in France for the world team meet, Andrea is expected to be given top billing.
The KL Junior meet, which is the biggest in Asia, has attracted 650 players from Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, Iran, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Japan, Colombia and Singapore.
Players from China and Myanmar will be competing in the meet for the first time as well.
