Joey Chan Ho-ling regained her Hong Kong Junior Squash Open title yesterday by trouncing defending champion Annie Au Wing-chi 3-0 at the Hong Kong Sports Institute. Competing in the under-19 category, Chan took only 31 minutes to dispatch her Hong Kong team comrade Au, the top seed. Chan took the first set, 9-1, comfortably but struggled in the second rubber, 9-4, before overpowering her rival in the last one by 9-4. Their teammate, Chiu Ka-kei, had already secured third place earlier in the day. Chan, Au and Chiu were in the girls' team, which triumphed in the world junior championships last month in Belgium. 'I was the second seed so I didn't have much pressure comparing to Annie [last year's champion,' Chan, the 2003 winner, said. 'I was more relaxed yesterday which helped me a lot to win.' Knowing Au was weaker on her backhand, Chan forced her rival to play a lot on her backhand. Chan also said she adopted an attacking approach to stop Au from controlling the game. Leung Shin-nga defeated Ko Shin-ting 9-5, 9-0, 9-4 to retain the under-17 category. In the men's event, top junior player Anson Kwong Yu-shun went one better this time, beating Chiu Ho-fai 9-2, 10-8, 9-2 to take his first title in the under-19 category.
