HONGKONG were dismal failures in both the boys' and girls' sections of the NTT World Junior (under-14) Tennis team tournament's Asian-Australasian zone qualifying round. Despite having home court advantage at the Hongkong Sports Institute, the local youngsters failed to win a match and had the dubious distinction of carrying off the wooden spoons. The boys' team comprised Jason Sankey, Jamee Wong Kwok-ching and Wayne Wong while the girls representatives were Yan Sin-man, Cindy Hah and Carrie Lee. Australia won the boys' division beating South Korea in the semi-final and then stopping Thailand in the title decider. But as the Asia-Australasian zone will be represented by three qualifying team and hosts Japan in the finals to be held in August, India also advanced following a defeat of South Korea in the play-off for third place. Australia is the only country in the regional zone to qualify for both divisions at the Japan finals but the Philippines prevented them from completing a double by winning the girls' section. South Korea earned the remaining slot by beating Thailand. SQUASH SQUASH playing schoolgirls Sally Hawkes, Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin and Eva Yam Wai-yue had their anxious moments when they were pitched against professionals at the Pak Fah Yeow Ladies Open earlier this week. Rebecca was given a wild card entry into the main draw together with Catherine Radcliffe as the territory's top two women players, but Sally and Eva played in the qualifying round. Eva got into the qualifiers following a late withdrawal and her flutter in professional squash was short-lived as she crumbled to a 9-0, 9-4, 9-2 defeat by American Ellie Pierce. Sally also found it rough against bright Australian prospect Toni Weeks, losing 9-1, 9-2, 9-1, but got through to the main tournament as a ''lucky loser'' following last-minute withdrawal of injured Finn Tuula Myllyniemi. Admission into the main draw earned her $1,950 in prize money despite a 9-5, 9-2, 9-2 loss to American qualifier Karen Kelso in the first round. Rebecca was handed the unenviable task of facing world No 3 Suzanne Horner and the 14-year-old never stood a chance against the experienced Englishwoman, losing 9-0, 9-0, 9-2. Hongkong Squash Racquets Association's development officer Jackie Yu Kwok-king said: ''It was good that the three girls were given a chance to play against professionals. ''It should be good experience for them and I'm sure they would benefit from the exposure.'' TABLE TENNIS THE territory's star table tennis duo, Chai Po-wa and Chan Tan-lui, again made their mark at the World Championships by collecting two bronze medals in Gothenburg, Sweden. Chai and Chan led Hongkong to a bronze in the team competition and bagged another medal in the doubles event by reaching the semi-final before bowing out to China's Deng Yaping and Qiao Hong. It was the third straight World Championships that the Hongkong pair have won medals and team manager Tony Yue Kwok-leung was extremely pleased with their efforts. ''Winning medals at this level is getting harder and harder all the time because everybody from all over the world are improving,'' said Yue, chairman of the Hongkong Table Tennis Association. ''This is indeed a very successful tournament for us, not only because of the medals but our men's team also performed incredibly well and earned a promotion to the world's elite group.'' The men's squad led by Europe-based Chan Kong-wah and Lo Chuen-tsung finished 14th overall and will be eligible to compete for the title at the 1995 championships in Tianjin, China. Chan collected a prized scalp in defeating men's singles runner-up Jean-Michel Saive of Belgium during the team competition.
