Hong Kong's tennis star Coleman Wong said on Monday that he's looking to go as far as possible when he represents the territory in his first Asian Games.

Wong will play in the men's singles, men's doubles with Jack Wong, and mixed doubles with Eudice Chong in Hangzhou.

"For me, I don't think it's going to be a lot of pressure because the players there are really good players. They are the top Asian players, and they are really good. They are probably in the top 100 or even top 50 in the world," Wong said.

"I feel like I have no pressure. I just want to go and enjoy every match and just try to stay as long as I can."

The 19-year-old said while he’s excited to be playing in the doubles events, more practice is needed to build stronger ties with his partners.

"We need some more practice that's for sure because we barely play with each other for the last few years, but I feel like we are getting there so it's going to be great," he said.

Head coach Amine Boustani, for his part, said he has a "dangerous team" that consists of new and experienced players who are looking to bring home some medals.

Hong Kong is sending six tennis players to Hangzhou at the end of the month.
