GOH Jin Wei is feeling refreshed and is looking forward to playing India’s P.V. Sindhu at the Malaysia Open on Apr 4-9.
The 17-year-old women’s singles was sidelined for nearly two months after injuring her left ankle prior to the Malaysia Masters in January.
After undergoing rehabilitation, the former world junior champion is set to make a comeback in Kuching.
“I don’t feel pain anymore and after two months of rehabilitation, I feel good.
“I am hoping to have a go at Sindhu because she is an Olympic silver medallist, and it would be good for me to gain some experience.
“As for now, I will focus on my training because I still have another two weeks to go,” said Jin Wei, who will play a qualifier in the opening stage before a possible showdown with the Indian ace in the second round.
Jin Wei, who is currently national No 1, will also have to shoulder the responsibility of helping Malaysia win a point as they are in the same group as Japan and England for the Sudirman Cup in Gold Coast, Australia on May 21-28.
“I am excited because this will be my first Sudirman Cup.
“Looking at the draw, I’m glad that we managed to avoid teams like China or even Denmark in the group stage.
“The toughest match will be against Japan surely, but I think we stand a good chance of advancing to the next round,” added Jin Wei. Fabian Peter
