Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin exorcised the ghosts of her extraordinary loss at last week's individual final by playing an astounding game against arch-rival Nicol David and anchoring Hong Kong to team glory at the 10th Asian Championships last night. Not only did the 21-year-old Chinese University student finally put her stunning loss to David behind her with her superb 2-9, 6-9, 10-8, 9-6, 9-1 victory, but she laid the foundation for Hong Kong's sensational 2-1 win over tournament favourites Malaysia at the Hong Kong Squash Centre. Chiu squandered six match points against 16-year-old David in their last meeting on Saturday, but there was no repeat of her heartbreaking loss as Chiu roared back from two games down to nail home Hong Kong's first rubber. Hong Kong number three Dawn Olsen, her left leg heavily strapped, had no answer to Tricia Chuan, losing 9-2, 9-3, 9-1 in the second rubber. It was then up to Christina Mak to come up with the goods and the plucky Hong Kong number two couldn't have had a harder game as she was forced to come back from two games down to wear out Sharon Wee 1-9, 3-9, 9-7, 10-8, 9-7. But it was really Chiu's victory that paved the way for Hong Kong's triumph - the first time Hong Kong had won the title in 14 years when Julie Hawkes and Teresa Brookes represented the then colony in 1986. Chiu found herself in another predicament when she trailed David by two games. But this time it was David who slipped up, making uncharacteristic mistakes to allow Chiu to led 8-1 in the final game. Chiu was simply unstoppable, winning points at the fore and backcourt. David left herself with a bridge too far as Chiu confidently outplayed her opponent. The Hong Kong number one raised her arms in triumph and smiled when she won the final point after forcing David to make a wayward shot on the sidecourt. Chiu celebrated the victory by hugging her boyfriend, squash player Adrian Fong, before running outside the court to be congratulated by well-wishers. 'I thought I was going to lose,' admitted Chiu. 'When I was down two games, I knew I had to work really hard to have a chance of coming back. I'm very happy to have won. I have finally restored some pride for Hong Kong,' she said. Chiu said she finally found her length deep into the third game, which she won 10-8. 'I didn't get that kind of feeling before in the game. Suddenly, I was hitting the ball better and my movement was better. 'I was beginning to feel that I could win it. I was winning point by point and I was making fewer mistakes. 'When I led 8-1 in the final game, I just knew I was going to win. This is the first time I have beaten Nicol in a senior game. I have only beaten her once before but that was in 1997 when I was still a junior,' she said. Malaysia earlier won the men's team title for the first time when they beat Pakistan 2-1. Recently-crowned Asian champion Ong Meng Hee defeated Mansoor Zaman 10-9, 9-1, 9-6 to put Malaysia on the road to victory. Teammate Kenneth Low gave his country the tie when he beat Jjaz Azmat 9-1, 9-3, 4-9, 9-5. Shamsas Islam won the meaningless third rubber, defeating Yap Kok Four 9-4, 9-2, 9-4. Ong, the 20-year-old 1999 world junior champion, beat Zaman in five games to win the individual men's title last Saturday.
