Calgary Women’s Week QF: Hong Kong Trio Join Letourneau In Semis

The quarter finals of the Calgary CFO Consulting Services PSA Women’s Squash Week saw the Hong Kong trio of Tze Lok Ho, Ka Yi Lee and Chan Sin Yuk all make it into the last four, with two of those downing members of the top four seeds to reach the semi-finals.

Chan Sin Yuk caused another upset, with the unseeded Hongkonger defeating a seeded player for the second consecutive day. After getting the better of No.5 seed Milou van der Heijden in the last 16, she then went on to beat compatriot, and No.4 seed, Liu Tsz-Ling, in the quarter finals. Yuk won in four games, including taking two tie-breaks, to win 3-1 and advance to the semis in Calgary.

She will face No.8 seed Ka Yi Lee, who caused arguably the biggest surprise of the day, as she downed World No.33 Donna Lobban, the tournament’s No.2 seed. The Hongkonger took the first two games to hold the advantage in the contest, before seeing the Australian fight back to level the match and send it into a deciding game. However, it was eventually Lee than would win it after 50 minutes of action.

The other semi-final will see home favourite, and the competition’s top seed, Danielle Letourneau, take on another Hongkonger, in No.3 seed Tze Lok Ho, after the pair both came through their respective last eight matches in straight games. Letourneau defeated No.7 seed Marie Stephan, while Ho got the better of compatriot, and No.6 seed, Tsz-Wing Tong.

The semi-finals of the Calgary CFO Consulting Services PSA Women’s Squash Week will take place on Saturday, March 5 at the Calgary Winter Club, and the action will be shown live on the club’s YouTube channel.
