Aus at the Double in Hong Kong

It was an Au double at the Crocodile Hong Kong National Championships as Leo and Annie made it a brother and sister double in the finals at Hong Kong Squash Centre.

First up on finals day was Annie, the top seed who had two previous titles to her name in 2009 and 2011, against first-time finalist Liu Tsz-Ling. Annie, firmly established in the world’s top ten, proved too strong for Liu, the 20-year-old world #44, winning 11/2, 10/12, 11/8, 11/3.

The men’s final pitched Leo, one year younger than Annie at 22, against defending champion and top seed Max Lee, 24 years old and world #33 compared to Leo’s ranking of #63.

Max was appearing in his fifth successive  final after finishing runner-up to Dick Lau three times before getting his revenge to beat Dick in last year’s final,  while Leo was another first-time finalist.

Both had reached the final without dropping a game, so something had to give, and it was Leo who prevailed in a see-saw five-setter 11/8, 8/11, 11/9, 9/11, 11/2 to complete the family double.
