Hong Kong thrashed Singapore 3-0 to advance to the semi-finals of the men's team event at the 10th Asian Championships last night - but they are unlikely to go any further into the draw. Ten-time national champion Faheem Khan led his side to a rout against the Singaporeans at the Hong Kong Squash Centre. But by doing so, Hong Kong have earned a semi-final meeting with Malaysia, arguably the strongest team in the event. Hong Kong can savour their quarter-final defeat of the Singaporeans, who offered only token resistance with Faheem, Jackie Lee and Vincent Cheung all coasting to straight-game victories. Faheem was first on court and he got down to business by trouncing Lim Jit-wei at the expense of just nine points in a 9-4, 9-5, 9-0 victory. Next up was Jackie Lee Chun-kit and the former Hong Kong junior champion made no mistake against Mohammad Rizal, winning 9-1, 9-7, 9-8. Vincent Cheung completed the rout by defeating Joel Ong in two games in a meaningless third rubber with the latter conceding defeat after Cheung won the opening two games 9-2, 9-1. Hong Kong had lost their final Pool B match 3-0 to Pakistan, who are likely to fight it out with Malaysia for the men's team title. Pakistan's Mansoor Zaman, Jjaz Azmat and Zubair Jahan-Khan had the easiest of tasks against Faheem, Lee and Yan Ka-ho, who were probably saving something for their match against Singapore later in the evening. While Hong Kong face an acid test against the Malaysians, the SAR women's squad continued to show fine form to guarantee themselves a semi-final berth. Led by Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin, the Hong Kong team defeated Singapore 3-0 with Chiu having the easiest match when she beat Della Lee 9-4, 9-4, 9-4. Christina Mak and Dawn Olsen both needed five gruelling games before disposing of Serene Lee 0-9, 5-9, 9-5, 9-5, 9-2 and Joannah Yue 6-9, 9-7, 9-1, 6-9, 9-0. Hong Kong play Sri Lanka in their final Pool B match today, although the SAR are already assured of playing either Japan or India for a place in tomorrow's final.
