Annie Gets Her Home Run
Hong Kong squash star
Annie Au fulfilled her top billing in the Women's HKFC
International 25 - and delighted the home crowd at Hong Kong
Football Club in Happy Valley when she held off the challenge
of Egyptian teenager Habiba Mohamed in today's final of the
WSA International 25 event to win the biggest WSA World Tour
title of her career.
Mohamed, the No.6 seed who
celebrated her 16th birthday during the event this week, pulled off
mighty upsets against second seed Rachael Grinham and third seed
Jenny Duncalf to claim her unexpected place in the final.
And the teenager looked on
course to carve out a third successive giant-killing act when she led
world No.11 Au, the top seed, 2/1.
But, spurred on by the home
crowd, the calm left-hander dropped just four points in the fourth to
draw level - then maintained the upper hand through the decider to win
11-7, 8-11, 9-11, 11-4, 11-8 after 63 minutes.
The triumph makes Au the
first home winner of the HKFC title - and takes her career Tour title
haul to 11.
Annie On Course For Home Hong Kong Title
Local star Annie Au is
on course to become the first home winner of the Women's HKFC
International 25 after seeing off Asian rival Joshana Chinappa
in today's semi-finals of the WSA International 25 squash event
at Hong Kong Football Club in Happy Valley, Hong Kong.
Left-hander Au, the top seed,
defeated the fourth seed from India 9-11, 12-10, 11-6, 11-9 in 48
minutes to reach her first Tour final of the year, but the 19th of her
"The last time we played
was in the HK Open in 2013 and Joshana beat me in five games, so I was
expecting a very tough match," said Au later.
"The match could have gone either way, I was
pretty lucky at crucial times tonight, and especially happy with my
"I'm now going to watch
the second semi-final before going home for some rest and some good
food, and to prepare for tomorrow. I'm very pleased to have won today
with Joshana playing so well in recent months."
The 26-year-old world No.11
will now face surprise opponent Habiba Mohamed, the sixth seed
from Egypt who celebrated her 16th birthday today.
The Alexandria teenager
continued her giant-killing run in the event by dismissing experienced
No.3 seed Jenny Duncalf, the former world No.2 from England, in
Mohamed stunned second seed
Rachael Grinham, the former world champion from Australia, in the
Mohamed, now in her fifth
Tour final, will line up against Au for the first time in the final.
Milou Masters Misaki In HKFC
Unseeded Dutch player
Milou van der Heijden produced the only upset in today's first round
of the Women's HKFC International 25 when she defeated eighth
seed Misaki Kobayashi to secure an unexpected place in the
quarter-finals of the WSA International 25 squash event at
Hong Kong Football Club in Happy Valley, Hong Kong.
Ranked three places ahead of
the reigning Dutch champion, Japanese number one Kobayashi opened up a
one-game lead over van der Heijden.
But the world No.40 from
Eindhoven fought back to establish a 2/1 lead - then recovered from
losing the fourth to close out the match 6-11, 13-11, 11-3, 4-11, 11-7
in 50 minutes.
"Beat Misaki Kobayashi
(Jap) in the first round today," the
victorious 24-year-old told her Twitter followers.
"Happy to win in five. Tomorrow I play former world no. 2
Jenny Duncalf (Eng) in the quarterfinal!"
Duncalf, the third seed
denied 42-year-old Latasha Khan a place in the last eight when
she beat the US qualifier 11-4, 12-10, 11-2.
Local stars Annie Au
and Joey Chan will meet in the next round to ensure Hong Kong
interest in the semi-finals. Top seed Au beat compatriot Carmen Lee
11-1, 11-4, 11-5, while Chan, the fifth seed, also took out a fellow
countrywoman in a 12-10, 11-2, 11-4 defeat of qualifier Choi Uen Shan.
