Harrow’s Alan Clyne Retires at Malaysian Open

Alan Clyne had to pull out injured in the second qualifying round at the $52K Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, due to an ankle injury that meant that he couldn’t lunge towards the ball  – AC quote “which is fairly important in squash!”

Alan tweeted that his ankle had been getting more and more sore each day he’d been away so it was immediately obvious that he would not be able to continue in his match against Australian Ryan Cuskelly (PSA No.#43) and he retired after just 7 minutes.

Alan’s quick retirement should help to minimise any long-term injury as he looks towards the Commonwealth Games in India later this year.

    Looks like @Clynesquash had to retire after 7mins in the the Qualifying final.

    Hopefully nothing too serious!

    Alan Clyne has won his first qualifying round at the PSA $52K Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur.

    He beat the local favourite Kamran Khan (Mas) in 5 games today in just under an hour (52 mins).

    Its’ going to be a tough tournament for Alan (as the $52K prize money would suggest!) with Shorbagy, Pilley, Boswell etc all awaiting him should he get to the main draw. In fact there are 10 of the World top 50 players competing for the prize money (including the PSA No’s 14, 16, 17, 18, 19 & 22 all in the main draw).

    His next opponent will be Australian Ryan Cuskelly currently at 43 in the PSA rankings (14 places above Alan).

    Good luck Alan.
