In a match between two supremely fit players, Malhotra seemed to possess a wider range of strokes, but the tenacious Jangra hung on to finally win a five games at 9-11, 11-3, 11-0.

Former National champion Manish Chotrani trounced promising youngster Siddharth Samantray 11-2, 11-3, 11-0.

Supreet Downs Jangra In Five –Game Thriller
(Article in Indian Express , Mumbai : 9/4/ 2006)

In the second league match of the Top-8 ISP-Championship, championship, Supreet Singh showed his class to outplay Vikas Jangra.

Overcoming a two-game deficit, the 22-year-old Supreet, who also plays on the professionals squash Association (PSA) circuit, won 7-11, 6-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-8.

Meanwhile, former National champion Manish Chotrani scored an easy was expected to be given a tough fight by Sandeep, but the youngster hardly troubles the canny Chotrani, who won with ease.

The talking point of the day was Supreet’s comeback win over Jangra. After having won the first two games on a canter, one hardly expected Jangra to let the initiative slip. But Supreet turned the tide, hustling Jangra and not giving him space to go for winners.
