Joey Chan Ho-ling beat Aisling Blake for the second time in less than a week to reach round two of the Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open yesterday. Chan lifted her first title of the year on Sunday with a straight-sets win against the Irishwoman in the Macau Open, and Blake again could not cope, losing 11-6, 11-8, 11-6. 'I felt a lot of pressure, sometimes I'm afraid to be beaten by people I've just beaten,' said Chan, who dominated the T throughout. 'I tried to stay focused and calm, just be patient and not to attack too much. 'It makes it harder [having two matches against the same opponent so close together]; also you know the crowd is here and my coach and government officials and I wanted to play well for them.' Chan, who should be in the world's top 20 for the first time when next month's rankings come out, faces Australian sixth seed Kasey Brown today. 'I played her in New York [in September] and lost 3-1 so hopefully I can get revenge,' she added. Though Chan lost her rhythm halfway through the second set, she looked in control and her drop-shots to the corners hit the mark with depressing regularity for Blake. 'I was hoping I'd get my revenge this week, but it just wasn't to be, she was too sharp for me and too quick and I didn't have the answers,' Blake said. 'I was trying to contain her in the back corners, but she was able to dominate on the T with her lovely volleys and drops; when she starts putting them in she's hard to beat.' Earlier, Hong Kong Under-19 champion Lee Ka-yi showed she is the one to watch as she held her own against world No2 Jenny Duncalf, delighting centre court and even taking a game in an 11-4, 11-9, 8-11, 11-9 defeat. 'It was a great experience,' said Lee, who turns 18 a week tomorrow but seemed completely unfazed against the 29-year-old. 'In the first set I was nervous, but I played better in the others. I tried my best, but in terms of fitness and skills I have a lot of room to improve. 'I'm really pleased to take a game off the world No 2, she's definitely the best player I've played against.' Kasey Brown had a straightforward 11-5, 11-6, 11-7 win against compatriot Melody Francis, but is not taking Joey Chan for granted. 'I think she's improved so much this year and it's going to be really tough,' said the 26-year-old world No6. 'I know that I have to play my best tomorrow. She looked pretty sharp [against Blake] and even though I'm the senior player I think we're on even par.' Tong Tsz-wing, whom Lee beat in the Under-19 final, also impressed on day one against world No 1 Nicol David, delighting Hong Kong head coach Tony Choi. 'It's great for them to get this exposure, they've nothing to lose,' he said. 'To go through qualifying and take on world-class players in the main draw, they've already achieved their target. 'Overall I'm so pleased about our performance.' Duncalf never felt in real danger, however, she was full of praise for Lee: 'She played well and can go quite far; Hong Kong seems to have a good history of bringing the youngsters through especially with Joey and Annie [Au Wing-chi] and we've seen this week that there's another batch coming.' Wild card Liu Tsz-wing disappointed, though, outclassed by French seventh seed Camille Serme 11-3, 11-3, 11-1. In the men's draw, fans' favourite Thierry Lincou made a surprise early exit to Stewart Boswell, beaten 11-3, 11-9, 11-5. 'I was a bit fortunate tonight. I had to play as well as I could to beat him; to be fair, he was in the final in Macau [last Sunday] and it's probably a lot of squash he's had to back up from,' said Boswell. Four-time Hong Kong champion Amr Shabana of Egypt began his bid to win back the title he relinquished last year to Ramy Ashour (absent with an injury) by beating Malaysian qualifier Mohd Nafiizwan Adan in four games. He now faces compatriot Hisham Amour. Au aims to become the first local player to reach the quarter-finals when she takes on New Zealand's ninth seed Joelle King this afternoon.
