Shuttlers Lee, Chen bask in HK Open triumphs

Home favorite Lee Cheuk-yiu battled to victory over Indonesia’s Anthony Ginting to secure a shock Hong Kong Open win as the Chinese city’s protests raged nearby yesterday.

Lee, 23, came from a game behind and then saw off championship point in a thrilling decider before winning 16-21, 21-10, 22-20 to lift his first major trophy. The final took place at the Hong Kong Coliseum, a short distance from the Polytechnic University where a police officer was wounded by a protester’s arrow in the latest fierce clashes. China’s Chen Yufei fought to a hard-won 21-18, 13-21, 21-13 win over Ratchanok Intanon, the former world champion from Thailand, to be crowned the women’s singles champion. South Korea’s Choi Sol-gyu and Seo Seung-jae beat Indonesians Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan to win the mixed doubles, and China’s Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan saw off Koreans Chang Ye-na and Kim Hye-rin in the women’s doubles final.
