REPORTS

Hong Kongís Lau and Tong Victorious In Devonport

The Hong Kong duo of Tsz Kwan Lau and Tsz-Wing Tong took the titles at the Challenger 10 level City of Devonport Tasmanian Open this weekend, with both beating Malaysian opposition to win their respective finals.

The pair both came into the competition as the No.2 seeds, and Lau was also aiming for back-to-back titles, having won the Volkswagen Bega Open just seven days earlier. Thanks to his ranking, he received a bye through to the second round, where he then defeated compatriot Tang Ming Hong in straight games.

The Hongkonger then came up against another countryman, in No.8 seed Chi Him Wong, in the quarter finals of the competition, winning again in straight games, thanks to taking the momentum with a first game tie-break victory. He then lost the opening game of his semi-final against Japanís Ryunosuke Tsukue, but fought back to win in four to make it through to a second final in as many weeks.

In the final, Lau came up against Malaysiaís Addeen Idrakie, the No.3 seed for the tournament, and he required just over half an hour to make it back-to-back titles in Australia, winning 11-4, 11-8, 11-2 to secure the win, and to claim his second victory in the month of September.

Like her fellow compatriot, Tsz-Wing Tong was also the No.2 seed at the City of Devonport Tasmanian Open, and after a bye through the opening dayís play, she took on Switzerlandís Celine Walser in the second round. She took the win in straight games, before then going on to defeat No.5 seed Aira Azman of Malaysia in three in the quarter finals, thanks to winning two tie-breaks.

In the last four, the Hongkonger got the better of Australiaís Jessica Turnbull, the No.7 seed for the competition, coming from behind after the home hope took the first game of their contest. A second game tie-break win saw the momentum turn in Tongís favour, and she went on to win in four games.

The final saw Tong take on Malaysiaís No.3 seed Chan Yiwen, and she breezed through to the victory, winning in less than 30 minutes, 11-3, 11-3, 11-8 to secure her first title of the season, and make sure it was double delight for Hong Kong in Devonport.

The City of Devonport Tasmanian Open got underway on Wednesday afternoon at the Devonport Squash Club in Tasmania, Australia, and wildcard Jack Hudson took the big upset win on the opening day.

Hudson, one of three wildcards in the menís event at the Challenger 10 level competition, took on Malaysiaís Ong Sai Hung in the first round of the tournament, and was in control on home soil throughout the early stages, taking a two-game lead. The Malaysian fought back, though, to win the next two to send the match into a decider but Hudson recovered, and won the fifth 11-3 to book his place in the last 16 of the event.

He was not the only surprise winner in the menís draw, with Franceís Manu Paquemar also knocking out higher-ranked opposition. The Frenchman took on Pakistanís Zahir Shah and was in control throughout the match, winning in straight games in just 19 minutes to advance to the second round in Devonport.

There were no surprises in the womenís event, with a couple of late withdrawals prior to the tournament starting meaning that there were only five matches on day one. Former World No.1 Rachael Grinham was one of those in action, and she dropped just five points in her match against Pakistanís Noor ul Huda on route to the last 16.

The second round of the City of Devonport Tasmanian Open will take place on Thursday, September 8, with the seeded players coming into the draw in the last 16 of the Challenger 10 level competition.
