What's going on LTAM?

The national tennis players along out-of-favour and arguably Malaysia's best women's tennis player Jawariah Noordin will undergo trials next week for the two WTA Malaysian Open qualifiers wildcard entry spots.

But where's S. Thieviya? - last's year sole Malaysian qualifiers wildcard receiver

National coach Deen Heshaam Tan Abdullah says she was invited but did not respond here

However Thieviya and her dad-cum-coach Selvarajoo are denying this.

Selvarajoo, who formerly coached the national team, had initially thought Thieviya was not good enough hence Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia had not invited her.

"If they don't want her around, just say it. Don't have to say we didn't respond," said Selvarajoo.

Last year, LTAM came under fire for only using up one wildcard - Ajitpal Singh has the story here
Their reasoning was that Theiviya was the only one that asked to play.

The 2012 WTA Malaysian Open will be held at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Club from Feb 27 - March 4.
