Top Seeds Rise To The Buler Challenge

 

Event favourites Aaron Frankcomb and Annie Au emerged triumphant in today's finals of the Buler Challenge Cup at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong China.

 

Australian Frankcomb finally ended the giant-killing run of unseeded Indian Harinder Pal Sandhu in the climax of the men's PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event.

 

But it took the world No41 from Tasmania 65 minutes to see off Sandhu, ranked almost 100 places lower, 12-10, 11-6, 12-10.

 

Sandhu, the 22-year-old world No136 from Chennai, was playing in his first PSA Tour event of the year – but made his breakthrough in the quarter-finals where he ousted second seed Jan Koukal before going on to down Hong Kong's fourth seed Dick Lau in the semis.

 

But it was Frankcomb's day as the 26-year-old collected the third Tour title of his career.

 

Much to the delight of the local crowd, top-ranked Hong Kong player Annie Au justified her top billing in the women's WISPA World Tour 12 event by beating second seed Donna Urquhart to avenge her defeat by the Australian in the 2010 climax.

 

But 22-year-old left-hander Au was taken the full distance before finally clinching the title after 56 minutes.

 

Au's 11-9, 7-11, 9-11, 11-8, 11-7 victory marks up her tenth title on the WISPA Tour.
 

Sandhu Soars Into Hong Kong Final

 

Unseeded Indian Harinder Pal Sandhu maintained his giant-killing run in the Buler Challenge Cup by beating Hong Kong's fourth seed Dick Lau to reach the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong China.

 

Ranked 136 in the world, the 22-year-old from Chennai ousted second seed Jan Koukal in the quarter-finals – then in today's semi-finals recovered from a game down to overcome home hope Lau 8-11, 11-6, 11-5, 11-7 in 57 minutes.

 

Now in his third PSA Tour final, Sandhu will face favourite Aaron Frankcomb, the world No41 from Tasmania who also downed a Hong Kong opponent Max Lee, the third seed, 11-4, 12-10, 2-11, 11-9.

 

The victory sets up Frankcomb's seventh Tour final appearance.

 

Hopes of local success still ride high in the women's WISPA World Tour 12 event, however, where top seed Annie Au took just 21 minutes to despatch India's No3 seed Dipika Pallikal 11-7, 11-2, 11-1.

 

Now in her 14th WISPA final, last year's runner-up and top-ranked Hong Kong player Au faces Australian title-holder Donna Urquhart in a repeat of the 2010 climax.

 

Second seed Urquhart, the world No16 from New South Wales, defeated fourth-seeded compatriot Lisa Camilleri 11-3, 11-5, 11-5.

 

Urquhart is celebrating the 11th Tour final of her career.

 

Sandhu Salvages Semi-Final Slot

 

Indian outsider Harinder Pal Sandhu recovered from 2/1 down in today’s quarter-finals of the Buler Challenge Cup to upset second seed Jan Koukal to become the only unseeded player in the men’s semi-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong China.

 

Playing in his first PSA Tour event of the year, the 22-year-old from Chennai beat 12-times Czech national champion Koukal 11-9, 8-11, 8-11, 11-2, 11-9 in 76 minutes.

 

Sandhu will now face Hong Kong’s No4 seed Dick Lau, who held off the challenge of Egyptian qualifier Zahed Mohamed 13-11, 11-8, 12-10.

 

There will also be local interest in the other semi-final where third seed Max Lee lines up against favourite Aaron Frankcomb.

 

In his second-longest recorded match this year, Australian Frankcomb battled for 91 minutes to beat Leo Au 11-6, 12-14, 9-11, 11-9, 11-1 – and deny the crowd an all-Hong Kong semi-final in the top half of the draw.

 

Top seed Annie Au kept home hopes alive in the women’s WISPA World Tour 12 event when she defeated India’s fifth seed Joshna Chinappa 12-10, 14-12, 11-8.

 

But another Indian now stands in Au’s way to the final:   Third seed Dipika Pallikal, from Chennai, was stretched for four games before overcoming Australian Melody Francis 11-9, 9-11, 11-6, 11-2.

 

But an Australian is sure to make the final after Lisa Camilleri and Donna Urquhart prevailed in the other quarters.

 

Queenslander Camilleri, the fourth seed, removed Malaysia’s Siti Munirah Jusoh 11-4, 11-7, 11-4 - while Urquhart, the second seed from New South Wales, beat unseeded Hong Kong opponent Carmen Lee 11-7, 11-4, 11-2.

 

Fukui Trims Beard In Hong Kong Upset

 

Japanese qualifier Yuta Fukui produced the biggest upset in today’s first round of the Buler Challenge Squash Cup when he beat Australia’s Justin Beard to reach the quarter-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 10 event at the Hong Kong Squash Centre in Hong Kong China.

 

From 2/1 down, the 23-year-old from Nagoya prevailed in a tight fourth game before romping to an 11-9, 8-11, 5-11, 11-9, 11-5 victory over the Australian, ranked more than 100 places above, in 58 minutes.

 

Fukui will now meet local hero Max Lee, the third seed from Hong Kong who defeated Malaysian Choong Kam Hing 11-3, 15-13, 10-12, 11-5.

 

Top seed Annie Au delighted her local fans by taking her anticipated place in the last eight of the women’s WISPA World Tour 12 event after beating Hong Kong qualifier Choi Uen Shan 11-5, 11-5, 11-5.

 

But there will be surprise further Hong Kong interest in the women’s quarter-finals when unseeded Carmen Lee takes on Australia’s second seed Donna Urquhart.

 

Lee, the 19-year-old world No71 from Hong Kong, beat sixth seed Song Sun-Mi, the world No43 from Korea, 11-8, 11-4, 8-11, 11-8.
