Hong Kong’s Henry Leung broke into the top 100 in 2019 and has proven to be a consistent performer and winner on the Challenger Tour.
The majority of his early career came on the Malaysian Squash Tour from 2015 to 2018, with Leung securing his first win at the 2018 Beijing Squash Challenge. He claimed a further three titles within his next eight events.
Leung then started 2019 in the perfect manner with a win at the Contrex Squash Challenge, before lifting the Life Time Atlanta Open as well, the biggest victory of his career to date. Another victory came in 2020, at the Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Open, in what was his last appearance on Tour prior to the enforced six-month suspension due to Covid-19.
The Hongkonger returned for a trio of events on home soil, including the Chairman Cup, Chairman Cup 2 and the Football Club PSA, ahead of a debut appearance at the World Championships in Chicago.
He then reached at least the last eight of his next four Challenger Tour events, including making it to the semi-finals of the CAS – Serena Hotels / Combaxx International Championships. Leung finished 2021 with a runner-up finish at the QSF 3 in Doha, losing out to Yahya Elnawasany in the final.
In September he reached the semi-finals at the 2022 Nash Cup in Canada before losing to Curtis Malik after a gruelling battle of five games.
