Women's singles badminton player Kisona Selvaduray recently won the Sydney International tournament - her second title in two months. 

The 20-year-old Seremban-born lass defeated Japan's Shiori Ebihara 21-18, 21-13 in the women's singles final, in just 36 minutes, at the Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday. 
 
In August, Kisona had won the Hellas Open in Greece.

The Sydney tournament was her seventh this year, after suffering a knee injury in November last year. 

"The recent results are clearly showing that I'm trending in the right direction. It's been tough, to be honest, because the fear of aggravating the injury is always there. 

"To stay injury-free itself is a blessing, hopefully it stays the same as I'm really eager to build on the progress I've made in the past months," the shuttler was quoted saying by The Star.

The World No 149 may get to replace Goh Jin Wei in the women's singles event at the SEA Games in Philippines from Nov 30-Dec 11 this year, as Goh may not be fit to play in the tournament due to a stomach ailment. 

On the possibility of the SEA Games appearance, Kisona said she was ready for "any possibility."

"I'm not sure what's in store at the SEA Games, but I'm always ready for any possibility. I do not fear taking up a big challenge," she was quoted.
