Au & Lau Now Crocodile Challenge Champions In Hong Kong

 

Annie Au and Dick Lau, both second seeds, celebrated a notable Hong Kong double in the Crocodile Challenge Cup at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong.

 

In the climax of the women's $16,000 WISPA World Tour event, 20-year-old Au upset her senior compatriot Rebecca Chiu, the top seed, 7-11, 11-4, 11-1, 11-7.

 

It was the second successive time that Au had beaten her higher-ranked fellow countrywoman on the Tour - in a victory which takes her WISPA title tally to five.

 

It was also an all-Hong Kong battle in the final of the men's $6,000 PSA World Tour Super Satellite event. 

 

Dick Lau had reached the climax after despatching fellow countryman Max Lee, the No3 seed, in the semis - while his opponent Leo Au, a qualifier, had produced one of the performances of his life to quash Australia's top seed Bradley Hindle in straight games.

 

But Au was unable to extend his run in the final, where Lau celebrated a 12-10, 11-7, 11-4 victory to notch up the second PSA Tour title of his career.

 

Chinatsu Charges On In Hong Kong Challenge

 

Japan's unseeded Chinatsu Matsui continued her charge in the Women's Crocodile Challenge Cup when she upset sixth seed Olga Ertlova to reach the semi-finals of the $16,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong - becoming the only non-local player to make the last four.

 

The 31-year-old from Kawasaki - who made her breakthrough in the first round where she ousted local star Christina Mak, the third seed - beat higher-ranked Ertlova, from the Czech Republic, 11-5, 11-6, 11-7.

 

Matsui will now face rising star Annie Au for a place in the final.  Second seed Au defeated fellow Hong Kong player Elise Ng 11-3, 11-4, 11-5.

 

Top seed Rebecca Chiu and fourth seed Joey Chan will meet in an all-Hong Kong semi after straightforward quarter-final wins.  Former Asian Games gold medallist Chiu beat South Korea's Song Sun-Mi 11-7, 11-4, 11-4 - while Chan celebrated an 11-2, 11-6, 11-7 victory over unseeded compatriot Liu Tsz-Ling.

 

Australian Bradley Hindle stands in the way of an all Hong Kong line-up in the final of the men's $6,000 PSA World Tour Super Satellite event. 

 

The 28-year-old top seed beat Hong Kong's Wai Hang Wong 11-6, 11-7, 11-3 and will now face a second local player Leo Au for a place in the final.  Au beat fellow qualifier Ali Farag, of Egypt, 9-11, 11-8, 11-7, 11-7.

 

The other men's semi is the one predicted by the seedings - a domestic clash between second seed Dick Lau and third seed Max Lee.

 

Mixed Fortunes For Local Players In Hong Kong

 

There were mixed fortunes for local players in the Women's Crocodile Challenge Cup when unseeded Liu Tsz-Ling won an unexpected in the quarter-finals, but third seed Christina Mak crashed out of the $16,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong.

 

Liu Tsz-Ling, aged 17, recovered from a game down to beat eighth-seeded Austrian Birgit Coufal 7-11, 11-2, 11-0, 11-4. 

 

It was Japan's Chinatsu Matsui that caused Christina Mak's downfall - the 31-year-old from Kawasaki upsetting the world No44 11-4, 10-12, 11-8, 7-11, 11-9. 

 

Two Hong Kong players also boosted local interest in the last eight of the men's $6,000 Super Satellite event. 

 

Unseeded Wai Hang Wong beat Canada's No5 seed Tyler Hamilton 13-11, 0-11, 11-8, 11-6 and will now face top-seeded Australian Bradley Hindle for a place in the semis.

 

Leo Au became one of two qualifiers to reach the last eight unexpectedly when he upset eighth seed Graeme Wilson, from New Zealand, 11-9, 11-3, 11-6
