Tong Takes Top End Trophy

Hong Kong's Tong Tsz-Wing lived up to her top billing in the final of the Women's Top End Open in Darwin, Australia, when she beat Lotte Eriksen of Norway to claim her maiden title on the Women's Squash Association World Tour.

The 21-year-old Hong Kong No4 dropped her first game in the championship when she overcame third-seeded Australian Christine Nunn in the semi-finals of the WSA Tour 5 event at Darwin Squash Centre - a win which took Tong through to her fifth Tour final.

Eriksen, the Stavangar-born fourth seed, made her breakthrough in the other semi when she upset Milou van der Heijden, the No2 seed from the Netherlands, in four games to reach her third Tour final.
