  8th PSA title for Harinder

Harinder Pal Sandhu, whose father Harpal Singh Sandhu is an SP with Punjab Police, won the eighth PSA title of his career with an 11-8, 12-10, 11-4 win over Rhys Dowling of Australia in the South Australian Open Squash Championships in Adelaide. Prior to this, Sandhu defeated top seed Piedro Schweertman in the semi-final.

“This is my first ever PSA title in Australia and it feels really good after a hard week. It was Rhys Dowling’s third final in a row and to break his winning run means a lot. I told myself to refocus and win point by point. The conditions here in Australia are cold at this time of the year and I am not used to playing in the cold. So, I had to hit the ball with a lot of pressure. The break after the two PSA titles in May was good for me and I will be playing in Melbourne next week,” said Harinder Pal Sandhu.

  Harinder Pal Sandhu bags his ninth PSA title at the Victorian Open

India's Harinder Pal Sandhu continued his immaculate run of form as he claimed his ninth PSA title by winning the Victoria Open in Melbourne. Sandhu now has the most number of titles for an Indian male player in the professional circuit as he went past Ritwik Bhattacharya's earlier record of eight.

In the final, the third seeded Harinder beat the top seed Rex Hedrick of Australia, a player who is several rungs above the Indian in world rankings, 12-14, 11-3, 11-4, 11-7.

Except for the first game which went close and in the Australian's favour Harinder was at his best thereafter as he combined power and precision to wear down the local favourite in 77 minutes.

This has been an amazing 17-match unbeaten streak for the Indian starting with the Malaysian Tour success in early May. The Makati Open in Philippines and the South Australian Open victory followed before this latest success.

  Joshna Chinappa wins Melbourne Squash Meet to Clinch Tenth Professional Title

Joshna Chinappa upstaged second seed Line Hansen in straight games to win the USD 15,000 Victorian Open squash competition for her 10th WSA title.

Third seed Joshna beat the Dane 11-5, 11-4, 11-9 in the final of the WSA event. It was only last week that Joshna lost to Line in Kooyong.

The Indian's last triumph had come in the Richmond Open in April last year.

Coming as it did soon after her recent success in the National Championship, she was happy with her current form.

With the Australian Open to start in a few days and the venue being the same, the Joshna is looking forward to more success.

"I am so happy it will be at the same centre," she said.

The title in the men's section went to Australian Ryan Cuskelly who beat Greg Lobban of Scotland 12-10, 13-11, 11-9.

India’s Anaka Alankamony claimed her second title on the women’s professional squash tour when she stunned top seed Kylie Lindsay of New Zealand to win the Ipswich Open in Queensland, Australia.

The 18-year-old from Chennai took advantage of a string of errors from the world number 39 to win in straight games 11-8, 13-11, 11-5 in hot and humid conditions.

Alankamony had earlier beaten sixth seeded South African Cheyna Tucker in the semi-finals and fourth ranked Christine Nunn in the quarters to complete a weekend of upsets.

She settled far quicker than Lindsay in the final and took control in all three games to record a comfortable win.

“It’s been an amazing week for me, I was seventh seed for this tournament so it feels really good to win,” she said.

“I train in Chennai and it’s very humid there and I think it was a big advantage for me because it is a similar climate to over there,” she said.

“The climate didn’t really affect me – I really enjoyed playing here.”

Nicol David Wins Second Australian Open as Dipika creates history losing in semi finals

 
  19 Aug 2012  

Defending champion Nicol David of Malaysia won her second consecutive Hi-Tec Australian Open when she beat a gallant Laura Massaro in an enthralling women's final in Canberra's Royal Theatre.

David saved six game points in the crucial opening game then overwhelmed the Englishwoman in the next two to win 17-15, 11-2, 11-6 for her 62nd title on the women's tour.

Dipika Pallikal became the first Indian to enter the semifinals of a Gold Series event when she recorded a straight sets win over Amanda Sobhy in the Australian Squash Open in the Quarter Finals.

But in the Semi Finals Massaro came from 5-9 in the deciding fifth game to beat Pallikal and deny India a first ever finalist in a major tournament.

Pallikal had played superbly to take the fourth game 11-3 and opened a big lead in the fifth before faltering under the pressure of Massaro's comeback.

After beginning the match strongly, Massaro began to struggle to cope with Pallikal's deceptiveness at the front of the court.

Pallikal was unlucky to lose the third in a tiebreak then dominated until the late stages of the fifth.

She will be rueing losing a match that even her opponent conceded she should have won.

"At 9-5 down in the fifth I'd just decided I'd lost really and I just wanted to finish well and make the score respectable," Massaro said.
