香港女網聯邦盃(Fed Cup)晉升為亞洲 / 大洋洲第一組
By Hazel Yuen @ 3:32 PM :: 194 Views :: 0 Comments ::

(香港,2014210) 香港女網於二月四至八日在哈薩克阿斯塔納舉行的聯邦盃(Fed Cup)取得成功一役。在過去一星期,香港在亞洲/大洋洲第二組的四場賽事中,以不敗姿態成功在2015年晉升亞洲/大洋洲第一組,上一次香港在此組別已是2008年。在12個國家的競逐中,香港於決賽以2-1擊敗菲律賓。

 

由香港首席球員張玲、胡可澄、張瑋桓及初次參加聯邦盃的吳筠柔組成的香港隊,由台維斯盃(Davis Cup) 球手金久義帶領,在亞洲/大洋洲第二組的A組賽事對戰馬來西亞及越南。香港在A組兩個循環賽中,不失一局以3-0擊敗馬來西亞和越南。香港在淘汰賽中面對D組首名出線的印度,張玲及17歲的張瑋桓於單打賽事中,以直落兩盤勝出,贏得兩分,可惜胡可澄及吳筠柔於雙打賽事中落敗,最後以2-1獲勝及躋身最後階段的比賽。
 
在最後決定晉升第一組隊伍的淘汰賽階段,香港迎戰B組冠軍,擊敗了C組冠軍土庫曼斯坦晉級的菲律賓。香港在單打賽中再以不失一局的姿態取得勝利,張瑋桓以6-4 6-1擊敗Anna Clarice Patrimonio,張玲則以6-1 6-4勝過Marian Jade Capadocia。胡可澄及吳筠柔雖於雙打賽中以6-7 3-6 不敵Patrimonio Capadocia,但最終香港以2-1奪得勝利。這場勝利已確保香港在第二組的首名席位及篤定晉級亞洲/大洋洲第一組,這亦是近六年來繼連續三年於晉級淘汰賽中落敗,首次躋身第一組。
 
香港的聯邦盃隊長金久義表示︰球隊過去一週表現出色,三名單打球手,張玲、張瑋桓及胡可澄均在賽事中不失一局。張玲更是隊中的核心,她在首兩場比賽中,甚至不失一分。年僅17歲的張瑋桓表現令人眼前一亮,她的4場賽事大獲全勝。整個團隊,包括吳筠柔和教練Karan均表現非常出色。我們已證明了香港網球隊有能力擊敗我們從未打敗過的隊伍。我們很高興能在六年後重回亞洲/大洋洲第一組,特別在過去數年與晉級擦身而過。我們非常期待晉級後帶來的挑戰,因為在另一層次的競爭將會相當激烈。香港擁有一支年輕而有能力的球隊2015年及往後更能發光發亮。我展望香港球員能如擊敗擁有較高WTA職業排名的印度般,在職業生涯中貫徹無比信心。

Hong Kong promoted to Fed Cup Asia/Oceania Zone Group I for 2015
By Hazel Yuen @ 3:24 PM :: 238 Views :: 0 Comments ::

(Hong Kong, February 10th, 2014) Hong Kong have achieved promotion into the Fed Cup Asia/Oceania Zone Group I in 2015 after a successful week that saw them go undefeated in 4 matches at the Group II competition which took place from February 4-8 in Astana, Kazakhstan. Hong Kong defeated the Phillippines 2-1 in the final play-off stage to finish atop the standings out of the 12 countries competing. Hong Kong were last in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I in 2008.

 

The Hong Kong team, consisting of Hong Kong No. 1 Zhang Ling, Tiffany Wu Ho Ching, Eudice Chong and Fed Cup debutante Ng Kwan Yau, captained by Hong Kong Davis Cup player Philip King and coached by Karan Rastogi were placed in Pool A of Asia/Oceania Zone Group II with Malaysia and Vietnam. Hong Kong stormed through their two round robin matches, crushing both Malaysia and Vietnam 3-0, without the loss of a single set to finish first in Pool A. In the play-off stage, they faced Pool D winners India, with Zhang Ling and 17 year old Eudice Chong securing the 2 points needed by winning their singles matches in straight sets, before Tiffany Wu Ho Ching and Ng Kwan Yau dropped the ‘dead’ doubles rubber, to record a 2-1 win and progress to the final stage of the competition.

 

In the final play off stage to determine the Group’s top team and who would be promoted to Group I, Hong Kong faced Pool B winner the Philippines, who had beaten Pool C winners Turkmenistan to advance. Once again Hong Kong secured victory in the singles stages without the loss of a set as Eudice Chong defeated Anna Clarice Patrimonio 6-4 6-1 and Zhang Ling downing Marian Jade Capadocia 6-1 6-4. Tiffany Wu Ho Ching and Ng Kwan Yau lost a tight doubles 2 setter 7-6 6-3 to Patrimonio & Capadocia to round out a 2-1 win. The win secured Hong Kong’s 1st place finish in the Group II standings and their promotion to Asia/Oceania Group I for the first time in 6 years, after three consecutive years of falling in the final promotional play-off tie.

 

Hong Kong’s Fed Cup Captain, Philip King commented “The team performed strongly all week, with all three of our singles players- Lynn, Eudice and Tiffany not dropping a single set in their matches. Lynn in particular was a grounding force in the team, not even dropping a game in her first 2 matches and Eudice, at only 17 years old put in a very impressive performance, winning all 4 of her matches. The entire team, including Yau Yau and our coach Karan did a great job pulling together and setting the right standards for the future and we’ve proved that Hong Kong tennis has the ability to defeat teams we’ve never beaten before. We are delighted with our promotion back into Asia/Oceania Group I after six years in Group II, especially after getting so close to promotion in the last few years, and look forward to the challenge Group I will bring, as the competition is much tougher at that level. Hong Kong has a young and talented team that can only improve so the future looks bright for 2015 and beyond. My hope is that the confidence of beating countries like India full of higher ranked WTA professional players will also carry through to our individual players’ careers.

Zhang Ling captures ITF Women’s Circuit 10K Title in Egypt
By Hazel Yuen @ 3:49 PM :: 363 Views :: 0 Comments ::

Zhang Ling added more silverware to her collection last week by winning the ITF Women’s Circuit 10K title held from January 20-26th on the outdoor hard courts at the Jolie Ville Golf Resort in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

 

Lynn, the No. 7 seed, defeated qualifiers Eugenie Chapelle and Nikola Vadjova in straight sets in the first two rounds, before defeating No. 2 seed and WTA #284 Veronika Kapshay 6-4 6-4 in the quarter finals. She went on to avenge a loss in the previous week’s tournament against Turkey’s Ipek Solyu in the semi finals in a tight 3 sets, 3-6 6-4 7-5.

 

In the final Lynn beat Russian qualifier Polina Leykina 6-1 7-5. Leykina had taken out No. 1 seed Valentyna Ivakhnenko in the quarter finals. The title was her 11th ITF Women's Circuit win. 

 

Lynn is currently ranked No. 393 on the WTA rankings and she will be hoping to improve on that in the coming months as she has no points to defend until April due to an extended break last year due to injury.
