"The KL Open is one of our big events and I want to play some good squash there. I want to do well in the championship. My target is to break into the top 20 by this year," Chinappa told PTI.

Chinappa said she is feeling fitter than ever before.

"I did have an injury a year and a half back when I tore my ligament but I am all good now and stronger physically than before my injury," she added.

This year's Malaysian Open line-up is headed by former World No.1 Karim Darwish and Canary Wharf Classic finalist Peter Barker.

The prestigious PSA event, to be held from September 11 to 15 at the Curve Shopping Mall, will see the world's top men's and women's players in action.Pallikal said she is looking forward to getting back on the tour after a long off season.
