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
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
