Pearson Boost Makes Beng Hee Champion

Malaysian squash star Ong Beng Hee credited English coach David Pearson for his title triumph in the Royal Lake Club Open, the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event in its second year at the Royal Lake Club in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

Top seed Beng Hee, the world No23, had to fight back from 2/1 down to beat his fellow countryman Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan, ranked ten places lower, 11-5, 3-11, 9-11, 11-7, 11-7 in 96 minutes.

The 33-year-old former world No7 gave full credit to two weeks of hard training under Pearson.

"Pearson helped to boost my mental and physical strength in just two weeks," Beng Hee told the Malaysia Star. "I thank SRAM (Squash Racquets Association of Malaysia) and also NSC (National Sports Council) for sending me to England at such short notice to help improve my game.

"It was mentally and physically a tough match against Nafiizwan. But I thank God for managing to hang on to come back from the brink of defeat to win.

"It feels really great winning my first PSA title this year after struggling in previous tournaments," added Beng Hee.

The win, his first since January last year, marks up the 15th PSA Tour title of Beng Hee's career since April 1999.

Adnan & Beng Hee Make Royal Lake Final

Malaysia's top two squash players Ong Beng Hee and Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan will contest the dream Royal Lake Club Open final after prevailing in today's contrasting semi-finals of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 event in its second year at the Royal Lake Club in the country's capital Kuala Lumpur.

Top seed Beng Hee stormed to an 11-6, 11-8, 11-6 victory in just 37 minutes over Pakistan's No4 seed Aamir Atlas Khan.

The triumph takes the 33-year-old world No23 from Penang through to the 23rd Tour final of his career - but his first on home soil since winning the Malaysian Open in July 2008.

The other semi was an all-Malaysian affair in which the country's number three Ivan Yuen stretched Adnan for 73 minutes before the second seed eventually closed out the match 10-12, 11-7, 11-7, 11-8 to secure his anticipated place in the final.

The win takes 27-year-old Adnan into the 17th Tour final of his career - and his 11th on home soil.

Malaysians Close In On KL Crown

Ong Beng Hee led a trio of Malaysians through to the semi-finals of the Royal Lake Club Open - and will be hoping to overcome Pakistan's No4 seed Aamir Atlas Khan to set up an all-Malaysian final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event in its second year at the Royal Lake Club in Kuala Lumpur.

Beng Hee, the top seed, claimed today's quickest quarter-final win, beating compatriot Elvinn Keo 11-5, 11-6, 11-6 in 33 minutes.

Former world No14 Khan ended New Zealand interest in the event with an 11-9, 11-9, 11-7 victory over Paul Coll.

Second seed Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan and No3 seed Ivan Yuen will contest the other semi. Yuen defeated 17-year-old Pakistani qualifier Tayyab Aslam 6-11, 11-8, 14-12, 11-8 in 72 minutes, while Adnan survived one of the longest ever tie-break games when he beat Austrian number one Aqeel Rehman 11-7, 20-18, 11-3.

Home Heroes Swim Into Royal Lake Club Quarters

There will be Malaysian interest in all but one of the quarter-finals of the Royal Lake Club Open after a good day for local players in today's opening round of the PSA World Tour Challenger 15 squash event in its second year at the Royal Lake Club in Kuala Lumpur.

The top two seeds are on course to meet in an all-Malaysian final. Experienced event favourite Ong Beng Hee dropped a game to compatriot Sanjay Singh but needed only 38 minutes to despatch the event wildcard 11-7, 11-4, 8-11, 11-5.

But second seed Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan had to fight for 71 minutes before prevailing 12-10, 13-15, 11-4, 11-5 over Welshman Peter Creed.

Beng Hee, the 33-year-old former world No7 from Penang, now faces a second Malaysian Elvinn Keo, a 25-year-old from KL who beat India's Ravi Dixit 11-2, 11-8, 12-10.

There were impressive performances from two teenaged qualifiers. Local 19-year-old Addeen Idrakie showed great courage in stretching experienced Pakistani Aamir Atlas Khan to five games.

But the fourth seed from Peshawar ultimately survived 11-9, 11-9, 8-11, 4-11, 11-6 after 65 minutes to secure his anticipated place in the last eight.

Pakistani Tayyab Aslam, however, produced the day's biggest upset. The 17-year-old from Lahore ditched fellow countryman Khawaja Adil Maqbool - ranked 25 places higher - 11-5, 11-5, 11-5 in just 29 minutes.

Aslam, the world No 133 making his Tour debut in Malaysia, now faces third seed Ivan Yuen. The world No67 from Malaysia defeated compatriot Mohd Syafiq Kamal, a qualifier and also 17, 11-3, 11-5, 11-6.
