Wu Siu-hong is determined to see the Hong Kong International Open Championships title back in local hands when the eight-day tournament begins today at the South China Athletics Association in Causeway Bay. 'I think I definitely have a chance to win this tournament,' said Wu, who was beaten by the Philippines' Biboy Rivera in last year's final. Wu is also using the tournament as a warm-up for November's East Asian Games, where he said he would face stiff opposition from players from South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore. Chairman of the Hong Kong Tenpin Bowling Congress, Vivien Fung Lau Chiang-chu, said the key for Wu and the Hong Kong team in this week's tournament would be their ability to adapt to the lane changes and their mental preparation. 'They won't have too much of a home-field advantage, because they don't normally train at the SCAA Bowling Centre,' she said. The tournament, which added a seniors category this year, will involve more than 400 bowlers from about six countries.
