MANILA, Philippines—World No. 1 Zhou Mi of Hong Kong overcame four match points to turn back her Chinese rival yesterday and barge into the women’s singles finals of the Bingo Bonanza Philippine Grand Prix Gold badminton championships at the Philsports Arena.

The 6-foot-2 Zhou used her long reach to cover the court with authority but needed a great rally to pull off a 13-21, 21-14, 22-20 win over fourth seed and world No. 13 Jiang Yanjiao.

The 30-year-old Zhou enjoyed the support of the hometown crowd while battling the Chinese, who on Friday night broke their hearts after beating 13-year-old Filipina wonder Malvinne Ann Venice Alcala.

KUALA LUMPUR: World Cham­pionships-bound men doubles shuttler Chan Chong Ming will always remember the good deeds of his former coach Moe Chin Kiat.

In fact, Chong Ming learnt from his former master to develop an interest for going the extra mile to tend to the needs of others.

And before going for the world meet in India, Chong Ming will take time off from his training to do what Chin Kiat taught him – helping out others.

This time around it is to raise awareness of the Malaysian paralympic team who will be competing in the Asean Para Games next month.

Chin Kiat, also fondly known as Ciku, is currently the badminton coach of the paralympic team.

Chong Ming and his Pioneer Sports Management (M) Sdn Bhd partners Chew Choon Eng, Lee Wan Wah and Wong Choong Hann will also be involved in a fund raising programme – via badminton competitions – for three charity organisations.

The programme is jointly organised by the CIMB Foundation and Bukit Damansara House Owners Association (BDHOA).

RAZIF Latif, after being cleared of the Influenza A (H1N1) virus, is shifting his focus on preparing for the World Championships in Hyderabad, India on Aug 10-16.
Razif and Woon Khe Wei are among the four mixed doubles pairs selected for the tournament.Razif will make his world meet debut in Hyderabad

They are under no illusions about winning the world meet but the duo, who were paired off in January, hope it will be a breakthrough tournament for better things ahead.

"We were not expecting it as it was a toss between us and another local pair. I still can't believe that I will be making my world meet debut," said Razif yesterday.

Razif feels that he and Khe Wei are good for the quarter-finals if they prepare well.
He said their two main weaknesses are on-court understanding and focus during matches.
