Max on course for Crocodile repeat

Max carries home hopes as Lisa wins leftie battle with Joey

Hopes of home victories in the Crocodile Challenge Cup are still alive, but Scotland’s Lisa Aitken dealt those hopes a big blow as she beat second seed Joey Chan in an all-left-hander battle at Hong Kong Squash Centre.

Aitken’s win, one of the best of her career, sets up a semi-final with third seed Line Hansen who also beat a HK opponent in qualifier Lee Ka Yi.

In the top half of the draw top seed Donna Urquhart meets the last remaining home player Liu Tsz Ling, who needed five games to get past Kiwi Kylie Lindsay, for a place in the final.

In the men’s quarter-finals top seed and defending champion Max Lee won the latest in a long series of matches against compatriot Dick Lau, and now meets third seed Campbell Grayson who dashed hopes of a guaranteed HK finalist as he beat Leo Au.

The other semi-final features two unseeded players after India’s Harinder Pal Sandhu and Egypt’s Mazen Hesham won their last eight matches.
