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.
