Au & Adnan Junior Win NSC Satellite Titles

8 Apr 2007

Malaysia's Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan and Hong Kong's Annie Au clinched the titles in the NSC Satellite No1 after contrasting wins in today's finals of the inaugural Tour event at the NSC Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

Second seed Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan was facing his older brother Nafzahizam Adnan, the fifth seed who ousted Hong Kong's No1 seed Wai Hang Wong in the quarter-finals.

It was the pair's third meeting on the PSA Tour, but their first in a final - and it was 20-year-old Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan who ultimately prevailed after 78 minutes, winning 10-11 (1-3), 11-9, 11-10 (3-1), 8-11, 11-6 to secure the first Tour title of his career.

The women's climax also saw first-time WISPA World Tour glory for Annie Au. The 18-year-old notched up her fourth successive international title - albeit her first WISPA - when she defeated Malaysia's top seed Delia Arnold 9-6, 9-3, 9-5 in 42 minutes.

It was in February that Au became the Asian Junior champion for the first time - success which she followed by winning the Welsh Junior Open title, then the Austrian Junior Open crown last month.

Men's final:
[2] Mohd Nafiizwan Adnan (MAS) bt [5] Nafzahizam Adnan (MAS) 10-11 (1-3), 11-9, 11-10 (3-1), 8-11, 11-6 (78m)

Women's Final:
[3] Annie Au (HKG) bt [1] Delia Arnold (MAS) 9-6, 9-3, 9-5 (42m)
