MALHOTRA DOWNS MANGAONKAR FOR TITLE
(Article in Indian Express, Mumbai : 15/03/2009)


Top seed Vikaram Malhotra, on a spring break from Trinity University, where he is studying on a squash scholarship, helped himself to the men’s open title with a hard-fought win over teenager Mahesh Mangaonkar, the second seed, in the Rs.90, 000 prize money GVK-JVPG Squash Open, organized by the Indian Squash Professionals at the Juhu Vile Parle Gymkhana squash courts, here, on Saturday. 

Malhotra, the under-19 National Champion, had to dig deep into his reserves to quell the plucky challenge from the 15 year old Mangaonkar before winning 11-5, 15-7, 11-4, 11-9. 

Mangaonkar took some time to settle down and was easy meat for Malhotra in the first game. However, the British and German Open junior winner then began getting his winners in and also engaged Malhotra in longer rallies before jumping to a 9-5 lead in the second game. However , two brilliant winners from Malhotra and hasty shots that found the tin saw the scores level at 9-9 and 10-10, taking the game into difference of  two, which Mangaonkar won 17-15. 

His game crumbled again in the third game as Malhotra forced the pace and raced home 11-4 but there was more drama in store in the fourth with scores going neck to neck. Mangaonkar creditably kept the pressure on Malhotra, but the long rallies seemed to have tired the teenager, who gave up after a fight. 

Malhotra was full of praise for his younger rival and said there was not much to distinguish between the two players on court, but the younger player tiring out in the end tilted the scales in his favour.
