Yeap, he won both Men's and Mixed, but not the Women's double. He is a very good double player, definitely one of the best in Oceania. I managed to stayed and watched all the matches from 11am till 6pm in Brisbane yesterday.

Chia-chi Huang (AUS) clinched another championship title in Brisbane today at the 2006 Australian International. Huang, who was the women’s singles champion in the Grand Pix 2006 Equinox NZ Open last month, looked in good form against the 5/8 seed Chie Umezu (JPN) winning 21-10, 21-14.
In other finals, the John Gordon / Dan Shirley (NZL) combination in the men’s doubles defeated Ashley Brehaut (AUS) & Aji Basuki Sindoro (INA) in a closely fought match 21-19, 13-21, 21-18 with its share of drama over line calls.
