    Background: HONG KONG

    He Zhi-Wen, a 23-year-old student from Zhejiang, beat compatriot Xie Saike by three sets to one in the final of the Norwich Union Master in Hong Kong on June 2. He reached the final by beating Andrzej Grubba of Poland in straight sets. Despite some acrobatic rallies, the championship decider was a rather tame match - as finals between two Chinese players have proved to be in the past. Xie Saike, competition favourite, failed to play with sufficient application to deprive He Zhi-Wen of the trophy and the 6,000 dollar first prize. The score was 21-8, 21-15, 22-24, 21-10. In the semi-finals, European hope Grubba, who inflicted the only defeat on a Chinese player when he beat Chen Long Can in the quarter finals, fell victim to He when he was forced consistently into retreat. In the other semi-final, Xie Saike, won his way through with a straight sets win over Swedish European Champion Ulf Bengtsson.
