03-Jun, Semis:
Arnold takes home hopes into Penang final

Rachel Arnold will carry home hopes into the final in Penang after easing past Hong Kong' Lee Ka Yi in three quick games.

"I feel my match today was much better than yesterday," said the Malaysian teenager.

"I just stuck to my game plan even though she is injured. For tomorrow I will be facing Tong Tsz-Wing and I think tomorrow will be a 50/50 match."

Tong ended hopes of an all-Malaysian final as she beat third seed Vaness Raj in three games.

"I am happy to win but was expecting a tough match as I played Vanessa before, much tougher than today’s match," said Tong.

"The hot weather and home advantage for Vanessa made me a bit nervous. I will give my best to face Rachel as tomorrow it's the last match."


02-Jun, Quarters:
It's Malaysia v Hong Kong in Penang semis

Quarter-finals of the fourth women's Penang Open produced two Malaysia v Hong Kong semi-finals as the 2nd to 5th seeds progressed to the last four.

Fifth-seeded Hong Kong junior Lee Ka Yi stopped yesterday's giant-killer Satomi Watanabe in three games that took 44 minutes to complete.

"This wasn't an easy match as I can’t get easy points from Satomi," said Lee. "What I did was, I kept patient and made less mistakes."

Watanabe reflected: "I couldn’t give my 100% for today’s match and I made a lot of mistakes in the first two games. My opponent was mentally stronger than me."

Lee's semi-final opponent will be Rachel Arnold, the fourth who beat fellow Malaysian Aika Azman in four close games.

"I played her two years ago, that was a close match too. For today’s match, I didn’t play my best but I manage to win the match."

In the bottom half of the draw Vanessa Raj, the third seed, made sure there was home representation in both semis as she prevailed over Ho Tze-Lok, the Hong Kong girl retiring in the middle of the fourth game.

" played well today but lost my focus in the second game," said Raj. "Luckily I managed to get my focus back. My opponent played well and hung in there as much as possible. It was not a nice way to win like that but I did it."

Second seed Tong Tsz-Wing took 33 minutes to see off the challenge of unseeded home hope Nazihah Hanis.

"I played okay for today’s match," she said. "The ball is very bouncy compare to the courts in Hong Kong and that surprised me a bit.

"For tomorrow's match, I have to play more patiently."


01-Jun. Round One:
Satomi takes out top seed

The first round of the fourth Penang Women's Open produced two upsets, one of them massive as Japanese wildcard Satomi Watanabe beat Malaysian top seed Teh Min Jie, coming from a game down to triumph in the longest match of the day.

The second to seventh seeds - three from Hong Kong and three from Malaysia - made it thrrough to the quarter-finals, the other upset caoming as Nazihah Hanis beat eighth-seed Chan Yiwen in an all-Malaysian tussle.
