Annie Au wins Asian Squash Championship

Islamabad, May 6 (IANS) Annie Au of Hong Kong won the 17th Women’s Individual Asian Squash Championship by defeating Malaysian star Low Wee Wern here.

Top seed and World No.6 Wern was shocked by Annie, who is ranked No.10. It was Annie’s first trip to Pakistan and she was very happy and excited by winning the title, reports Xinhua.

“I really enjoyed while staying here as the people are very hospitable and I am taking back many good memories. Before coming to Pakistan my family was very worried but now the event is over and nothing happened; all is safe,” the 24-year-old said Sunday.

In the crowded Mashaf Squash Complex, Annie lost her first set at the hands of an aggressive Wern by a big margin of 5-11.

Annie’s attacking and tricky shots were appreciated all-around the hall as she outclassed the Malaysian in consecutive three sets by 11-8, 11-7, 11-1 in 44 minutes to clinch the title.

Talking about the final match and difficulties she faced to reach the title, Annie said, “I concentrated a lot at the game today because we both knew the game plan and style of each other as we have faced each other many times before. It was really a tough match but after the first set I didn’t give her any chance to attack me.”
