Hong Kong Squash officials have secured a major coup by landing world champion Rodney Eyles to help coach the SAR's Asian Games squad. Eyles, who is taking part in this month's Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Open, will arrive on August 17 - one week before the tournament starts - to help coach Hong Kong's top players. The respected Queenslander will stay on in Hong Kong after the Open until September 4. Squash officials revealed Eyles would help draw up individual training programmes for members of the Asian Games squad. 'It is really fantastic that he is coming,' said Heather Deayton, chief executive of Hong Kong Squash. 'The preparations for the Asian Games are already under way. We hope that Rod's experience and knowledge of the game will make an impression with the players.' Eyles has built up solid links with Hong Kong after regularly appearing at the Open since the mid-1980s. Hong Kong Squash has already taken on women's world number 14 Philippa Beams to help the SAR's leading women players prepare. Beams will accompany Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin to the Australian Open, which starts this weekend. Meanwhile, Hong Kong officials were cock-a-hoop yesterday after hearing Vincent Cheung Cheuk-yin had breezed into the fourth round of the World Junior Championships in Princeton, New Jersey. Cheung beat New Zealand's Jared Conning 9-0, 9-5, 5-9, 9-3 and now faces Egyptian Mohamed Abbas.
