Malaysia In Historic Asian Championships Clean Sweep

Malaysia defeated defending champions Pakistan in the men's final of the Asian Team Squash Championships at the Taipei Arena in Taiwan, Chinese Taipei, to pull off the first clean sweep of all four titles in the 25-year history of the championships.

Last week, Ong Beng Hee and Nicol David successfully defended the individual titles they won two years ago in Kuala Lumpur. Then David, the world champion and world No1, led her country to success in the women's team event, beating Hong Kong in the final.

Pakistan took the early lead in the men's final when fast-improving youngster Farhan Mehboob, a 17-year-old former Asian Junior champion from Peshawar, beat Malaysia's Timothy Arnold 9-1 9-1 9-4 in the opening rubber. But Malaysia's top string Mohd Azlan Iskandar, the world No14 from Sarawak, levelled the tie with a confident 9-2 9-6 9-2 victory over Pakistan's Mansoor Zaman.

It was left to squad No2 Ong Beng Hee to clinch victory for the top seeds, beating Mansoor's cousin Shahid Zaman 9-2, 9-3, 9-3 to secure Malaysia's historic title win.

"The weather may have been wet and dreary but the spirits were surely high and charged," said Asian Squash Federation spokesman Major Maniam. "Overall, it was an extremely successful event and all credit must go to the Squash Rackets Association of Chinese Taipei who worked extremely hard to put up a splendid show, their first ever Asian Championship."

In the play-off for third place, fourth seeds Kuwait upset India, the third seeds, 2-0. Hosts Chinese Taipei, the 11th seeds making their debut in the event, finished in an impressive ninth place after beating 10th seeds Iran 2-1.Malaysia In Historic Asian Championships Clean Sweep

Malaysia Retain Women's Asian Team Title
World champion Nicol David led her country to a third successive women's triumph in the Asian Team Squash Championships today (Monday) when Malaysia beat second seeds Hong Kong 2-0 in the final at the Taipei Arena in Taiwan, Chinese Taipei.

Tricia Chuah put the favourites ahead with a 10-8, 9-5, 9-0 win over Hong Kong's Elise Ng, before the record five-times Asian individual champion Nicol David clinched the title for Malaysia with a 9-4, 9-3, 9-0 victory over the Hong Kong No1 Rebecca Chiu in a repeat of last week's individual final.

A first-time 'grand slam' of all four titles is still on the cards after favourites Malaysia beat India 2-1 in a men's semi-final today which went right down to the wire. India, the third seeds, started positively with Gaurav Nandrajog beating an error-prone Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan 9-2 5-9 9-5 9-2.

The second match, the best of the day, was between Mohd Azlan Iskandar and India's No1 Ritwik Bhattacharya. As training partners in London, they knew each others games well. A highly-charged Bhattacharya came on strongly though he was two games down. The 26-year-old from New Delhi bravely fought back to level the score. The fifth was an extremely exciting affair with the Indian team relishing the prospect of getting into the finals for the first time ever. Iskandar, however, hung in to record a 9-1, 9-7, 7-9, 6-9, 9-5 win to draw the tie.

The third match was a one-sided affair with Ong Beng Hee in full control against India's Saurav Ghosal. The Malaysian's fluid movement and deft touches in the front of the court were a delight to watch. Beng Hee completely outclassed Ghosal, despite the 19-year-old from Chennai giving everything he had.

The 9-1, 9-0, 9-1 win takes Malaysia forward to face old rivals Pakistan, the defending champions, in the men's final tomorrow.
