Hoang Ly has been yearning to grab his fishing pole and bait and spend a relaxing day on the Newport Beach pier.

Ly, The Times' Orange County badminton player of the year, won five tournament championships and lost only one of 66 matches during the past season.

"In another two or three years, I will have a chance. "Right now, I need more skill, endurance and consistency in my game." But modesty might be his best weapon.

Cypress High School has a one-girl badminton team. No program. No full-time coach. Only Sanne Simonsen, who swept through the semifinals and finals Friday to win the girls' singles title during the Southern Section Individual Championships at Cal State Dominguez Hills.

Estancia High School badminton Coach Lillian Brabander must cringe when imagining Hoang Ly with a soft jump shot. If Ly was dangerous from the outside or had fancy moves inside, he might have starred on the Eagles' basketball team. Instead, he gave up basketball after starting on the junior varsity team as a sophomore to concentrate on badminton. It was a wise choice, said Brabander. "This kid was born with badminton skills," she said. "He's the Magic Johnson of badminton.

Two years ago, freshman Noy Sundara was an extra player for Buena Park High School's junior varsity badminton team. She didn't show the form back then that would allow her to win the Southern Section girls' singles title this season. "She had the skill," Buena Park Coach Michelle Tafoya said. "She probably, at that time, didn't know what the game was about and was slow." But Sundara did show something that Tafoya said was more important: a winning attitude.

Martina Hingis kept her winning streak alive in the Family Circle Cup, even if her game lagged a little Friday. Hingis, the world's top player, won the first seven games against No. 11 Natasha Zvereva, then held on through a second-set tiebreaker to reach the semifinals with a 6-0, 7-6 (7-0) victory at Sea Pines Racquet Club at Hilton Head Island, S.C. Zvereva's screwball assortment of lobs, spins and slices caught up with Hingis after a quick opening set.
