KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 18 (Bernama) -- Former world number 10, Mohd Azlan Iskandar, proved that he has still not lost any of his touch in international competition despite just coming back from his retirement.
The 32-year-old Mohd Azlan today defeated Kuwait's Ammar Altamimi in straight sets 11-4, 11-6, 11-1 in the first qualifying round of the men's division in the 2014 Malaysian Open squash championships.
In the qualifying rounds held at the National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil, Mohd Azlan took only 22 minutes to outclass Ammar.
"It was still a tough match though. However, I am excited to be playing again and looking forward to my next match," said the Sarawakian, who will once again don the "Malaysia Hero" jersey at the Incheon Asian Games in South Korea next month.
He will face South Africa's Shaun Le Roux tomorrow for a place in the main draw.....
