Hong Kong's Rebecca Chiu faces a difficult task at next week's Fujifilm Hong Kong Junior Squash Open as she competes against the strongest overseas lineup in the history of the tournament. Defending champion Chiu is the territory's best hope in the under-19 girl's individual event but she will have her hands full facing New Zealand's junior champion Shelly Kitchen and Malaysia's Asian champion Leong Siu-lyun at the Hong Kong Sports Institute on Wednesday. Leong, 14, beat Chiu in the Asian Championships and is expected to continue her recent domination over Chiu while Kitchen should provide stiff additional opposition for Hong Kong's top junior. Wong Wai-chung has been seeded number one in the boy's under-19 event but he is expected to receive tough opposition from Ricky Lee from Malaysia and Zubair Ali Khan from Pakistan. Khan defeated Wong in five games in last year's quarter-finals in this tournament and could prove too strong again. Vincent Cheung, Hong Kong's number two, and Hong Kong's Adrian Fong, champion of the Asian junior circuit, are seeded between ninth to 12th in the same event. A total of 49 overseas entries from seven countries have entered in the tournament, one of the most popular in Asia. Hong Kong's top player, Faheem Khan, lost to Australia's David Palmer in the quarter-finals of the Kuala Lumpur satellite tournament. Palmer won 17-15, 4-15, 7-15, 15-12, 15-3.
