Back in March last year, Singapore fans witnessed Clarence and Ethan stun former World Championship doubles silver medallists Ovidia Inonescu and Alvaro Robles, enroute to the men’s doubles quarterfinals at the first-ever Singapore Smash. “I’m grateful for the chance to play in front of a home crowd again, especially in a prestigious event like Singapore Smash. Opportunities like this are valuable to those of us who are more experienced, as well as my younger team-mates who have also received wildcards. We’ve been training hard for Singapore Smash so that we’re ready to play our best on home ground, and we’re all looking forward to it," said Clarence. 

Over in women's action, the Republic's Zhou Jingyi and Wong Xin Ru, will compete in the singles main draw. And their compatriots Ser Lin Qian and Zhang Wanling have been awarded wildcards into the qualifying draw. 

Singapore Smash 2023 will feature 64 player men’s and women’s singles and 24-pair doubles and mixed competitions. A singles qualifying competition featuring a further 64 men and 64 women will be held from 7-9 March. The full line-up of players will be announced in early February with more Singaporean players also expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
