ASPIRING tennis professional Willy Chan Lee ended 1993 on a high note by winning the girls' singles final of the Reebok Asia/Pacific Championships at the Victoria Park on New Year's Eve. The 16-year-old Hong Kong ace, who gave up schooling to become a tennis professional a year ago, capitalised on the experience of regular exposure at senior level for her first major international title. Second-seeded Chan got off to a shaky start in the under-18 tournament, overcoming a second-set lapse before pulling through for a 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 first round win over China's Tuo Oi. She demolished South Korean Chung Hye-jeon 6-1, 6-3 to book her berth in the last eight against Khoo Chi Bee, crushing the Malaysian number one 6-3, 6-1. Chan, who is ranked in the world's top 500 but a relatively lowly 145 on the juniors' chart, then defeated Taiwan's Fan Chiang Yu-ming 6-4, 6-2 in the semi-finals. She came up against Japan's Yosuko Nishimata, a surprise semi-final victor over top-seeded Taiwanese Weng Tzu-ting, in the title decider and prevailed 6-4, 6-4 to be crowned the region's number one junior.
