“It is going to be very similar in terms of intensity in Glasgow. I believe everyone will be gunning for the gold too,” she added.
Nicol will also be out to win Malaysia’s first medal in the women’s doubles with national No. 2 Low Wee Wern. The pair are seeded fourth.
“It is tougher in the doubles. We have to adjust our playing style as the court is wider. At the end of the day, it’s down to us to do what needs to be done,” said Nicol.
“I think Wee Wern is a good partner because she is solid and she just keeps going. She will do her part well and I just need to reduce the mistakes I make,” she added.
The other Malaysian women for the Games are Delia Arnold, Rachel Arnold and Vanessa Raj. In the men’s category, Malaysia are represented by Ong Beng Hee, Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan, Ivan Yuen and Valentino Bon Jovi Bong.
