It's groundhog day once again for underdog Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin today. The Hong Kong squash ace is in the gold medal match and will meet arch-rival Nicol David of Malaysia in a repeat clash of the last Asian Games final. Four years ago, Chiu lost 3-0 to David, Asia's number one player, and had to be happy with silver. Now she wants more. 'We have achieved our target which was to defend the silver medal. But Rebecca wants more. Anything more will be a bonus for Hong Kong,' Hong Kong coach Tony Choi said yesterday. Chiu defeated Malaysian number two Sharon Wee 2-9, 9-1, 9-1, 9-2 in the semi-finals to book her place in the final. David saw off the challenge of South Korean Lee Hai-kyung 9-5, 10-8, 9-2. Close friends, they will battle it out once more for gold today. 'Rebecca will have to be more patient and try and keep Nicol at the back of the court if she is to have any chance of winning. She has to wait for the opportunity. She is the underdog,' said Choi. Chiu, 23, is better-prepared this time around. Four years ago in Bangkok, she was a part-time squash player and had a world ranking in the 50s. Two years ago she decided to try her hand on the professional circuit. Now she is ranked 27th in the world. But David is still a class above her. The Malaysian star is only 19. She is ranked 18 in the world and is undisputably one of Asia's best ever players. 'It will be tough for Rebecca. Nicol is very good. But I have hope because Rebecca has improved a lot in the past two years. She has got physically stronger and is a lot fitter.' Chiu began slowly against Wee yesterday. She dropped the first game before discovering her length and touch to win the next three games easily. 'Wee came out attacking and caught Rebecca off guard. But once she had warmed up, the match was in the bag,' said Choi. In the men's final, top seed Ong Beng Hee of Malaysia will meet Pakistani second seed Mansoor Zaman. Ong defeated Pakistani Shahid Zaman 9-6, 6-9, 4-9, 9-7, 9-4 while Zaman defeated Malaysian Iskander Azlan 9-2, 9-2, 3-9, 9-2.
