After rocketing to third in the world rankings, Zhou Mi aims to round off her year by winning next month's Yonex-Sunrise Hong Kong Open - the last of the 12 Super Series tournaments of 2008. The high-flying shuttler has collected two Super Series titles, two runner-up finishes and two grand prix gold medals this year and was outside the world's top 100 when she started representing Hong Kong in April last year. 'It has been a marvellous year after coming back to the top level,' she said yesterday. 'I want to do well in front of the home crowd [next month] because I want to make amends for last year's defeat in the second round as a thank you for the fans' support. After all, it is Hong Kong that has given me a new life in my badminton career.' The former world number one dropped out of China's national squad in late 2005 and she will be eligible to represent Hong Kong at international level-one team events next year, such as the Uber Cup, Sudirman Cup and world championships. More than 200 top international players will compete in the US$250,000 Hong Kong Open at Queen Elizabeth Stadium from November 25-30. 'We have extended invitations to all Beijing Olympic gold and silver medallists,' said Tong Wai-lun, chairman of the Hong Kong Badminton Association.
