Winners in Men's and Women's Singles 'presented by Citius' Sports Club
Laval, QC - November 18, 2017
Gu Meng (MS) and Cindy Wang (WS) took the honours at the Quebec Open, the first Canada Cup event of the 2017/18 season. Both are members of the Citius Sports Club in Richmond, BC which manages the table tennis program at the Richmond Olympic Oval and both were challenged early in the tournament on their way to victory.
Gu Meng faced a quarter-finals challenge of local youngster Edward Ly. The two traded games (11-9, 7-11, 11-6, 9-11) to head into the deciding game at 2-2. Meng, the more experienced player of the two, then pulled out an 11-7 win to advance to the semis.
There was little opposition in the semis from Mohammed Faris Qatan who had to let Meng pass with a clear 3-0 win (11-9, 11-3, 11-8).
In the finals, Canadian Champion Jeremy Hazin was no match for Meng. Gu Meng took the finals - and the Canada Cup title - with a 3-1 win.
Cindy Wang followed a path similar to that of her club colleague. Seeded #2, she faced her toughest match in the Quarters against Ann Shiao (ON). Down 0-2, Wang turned the match around to prevail in the contest and move on top the Semis.
Neither Justina Yeung (ON) in the semi-finals nor Yu-Hsan Chen (ON) in the finals could put up much resistance to Wang's drive to the Championship.
