Shanghai-born Wang Chen inspired badminton minnows Hong Kong to a memorable victory over Denmark and sent the European giants crashing out of the prestigious Uber Cup team tournament on Saturday. Wang sent All England champion Camilla Martin scrambling to all four corners of the court as she fought her way to a magnificent 7-5, 1-7, 7-1, 7-2 victory. Martin even suffered the embarrassment of tripping over her own feet as she desperately tried to fight off Wang's relentless attack in a bid to prevent the Danes losing their second straight match and almost certain elimination from the blue riband eight team event, but all to no avail. Hong Kong youngster Wang Ting Ling then dominated Christina Sorensen, winning in straight games. That left Koon Wai Chee to hold her nerve against Tine Hoy for a remarkable win. (PTI)
