Hong Kong’s Henry Leung beat teammate Tsz Kwan Lau to win the $11,000 globalsquash.com Life Time Atlanta Open, the world No. 92’s second PSA title of 2019 Sunday, February 17, at Life Time Athletic Sandy Springs in Georgia.
One week prior to Atlanta, Lau got the better of his Hong Kong compatriot in the Linear Logistics Bankers Hall Club Pro Am, on his way to the final. This week, though, it was Leung that took the victory, defeating Kwan in a marathon four-game final, 13-11, 9-11, 12-10, 11-5 after ninety minutes.
“Rallies were long and brutal between both players,” said Andre Maur, Life Time Squash Tour Director. “Henry looked in control all week and had a plan from right from the start of the event. He played, he fought and he conquered to win his first title on the Life Time Squash Tour.”
Leung celebrates his third PSA title in his last four events. The title was also the twenty-three-year-old’s first career U.S. Pro Series appearance, and is the first Hong Kong international to lift the Atlanta Open winners trophy.
The Atlanta Open will celebrate it’s twentieth year in 2020, having been held annually since 2000.
