Goran Bosalevski's hopes of winning a successive Hong Kong triple crown gained momentum when he lifted the men's singles title at the SCAA Open yesterday at King's Park. The Macedonian-born Australian swept past Michael Lai Xiaopeng 6-2, 7-5 to stay on course for another sweep of titles. He will now set his sights on winning next month's Chinese Recreation Club (CRC) Open and December's Hong Kong National Championships, the second and third legs of the triple crown. Bosalevski, a resident coach at the On The Rise (OTR) Tennis Academy at the Hong Kong Tennis Centre, became one of the few players to have won the triple crown last year. Lai staged a late comeback in the second set when he rallied from 3-1 down to lead 4-3 before Bosalevski's experience told in the end. 'Michael didn't find his groove earlier on. I'll probably rate my performance a seven or an eight out 10. I felt I played a bit loose at times. Conditions were a bit tricky today. It was hard to play your best,' said Bosalevski, who picked up HK$20,000 prize money. 'I didn't serve very well today. Goran served well and he didn't hand me any free points. I was under pressure most of the time,' LaI said. Bosalevski and Lai teamed up in the doubles final, but failed to stop Sean Cooper and Jason Lijewski, who posted a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victory. Sisters Sher Chun-wing and Sher Pui-wing won the women's doubles after defeating Wu Ho-ching and Katherine Ip 7-6 (7-1), 6-2. Chun-wing had won the singles final on Saturday by defeating Ip 6-0, 6-0.
