Chairman Cup: Tsz-Ling & Wong Take Victories

World No.45 Liu Tsz-Ling and World No.100 Chi Him Wong have emerged victorious from the Chairman Cup in their native Hong Kong, after both beat higher seeds in the final.

Like all events on the Challenger Tour at this time, the Chairman Cup had limited entries, with only those currently residing in Hong Kong being allowed to participate in the tournament.

Liu Tsz-Ling was the No.2 seed for the event, but sat just a single place below the event’s top seed, Tze Lok Ho, in the World Rankings. The pair came up against each other in the final, with Tsz-Ling taking the victory in less than half an hour.

To reach the final, she had already gotten the better of Wai Zse Wig, Vanessa Chu and Chan Sin Yuk, with the semi-final being the only match in the tournament where she dropped a game.

The men’s final was played out between No.3 seed Tsz Kwan Lau and No.4 seed Chi Him Wong, after the pair had knocked out the top two seeds for the tournament in the last four.

After dispatching No.2 seed Henry Leung in the semi-finals, Chi Him Wong then took victory in the final, with a five-game victory over Lau, who sits 13 places higher in the World Rankings.
