It's two down, five to go for Hong Kong's squash stars. Their hopes of making a clean sweep of gold medals at the East Asian Games squash tournament received a huge boost on Sunday, thanks to fine performances by veterans Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin and Dick Lau Siu-wai. All four players in the women's and men's singles finals came from Hong Kong. Chiu battled top-ranked Annie Au Wing-chi in the women's championship game, winning 11-9, 11-9, 12-14, 12-10. Both players gave their all in a match that lasted more than an hour. Chiu's gold medal-winning performance showed, at the age of 31, she's still in top form. Hong Kong's coach Tony Choi Yuk-kwan said Chiu used her experience to beat her younger opponent. 'Rebecca has competed at the Asian Games several times, but Annie was taking part in her first large-scale, multi-sports event. I think both of them played well. What Annie lacked was experience,' he said. Chiu's happy to win the gold medal, but will not be celebrating too much. 'I have to calm down and concentrate on the team and doubles matches ahead,' she said. Au said she was looking forward to this week's competitions. 'Although I lost, I gained experience. It would definitely help me to perform better in the upcoming matches,' said the 20-year-old. Au will pair up with her younger brother, Leo Au Chun-ming, 19, in the mixed doubles. 'I'm looking forward to the doubles matches to compete with Rebecca again,' she said. In the men's singles, Lau, 23, beat 21-year-old Max Lee Ho-yin 11-8, 8-11, 11-7, 11-4 to win the gold medal. 'We've competed at least five times this year. I've won three times. I think the key to my victory was my solid performance,' Lau said. Both Lau and Lee said they hoped to do well in the men's team event.
