Weekend Roundup: Sandhu and Ramadan Capture Silverware in Mumbai

India's Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu and Egypt's Hana Ramadan took the honours on the Challenger Tour over the weekend, beating Tomotaka Endo and Lucy Turmel, resprectively, on the Mumbai Leg of the HCL SRFI Indian Tour.

Sandhu captured silverware on home soil as he completed an 11-5, 11-6, 11-7 victory over Japan's Endo to lift his 11th PSA Tour title.

One of the key moments in Sandhu's success was a comeback from 2-1 down against Czech Republic's Ondrej Uherka in the quarter-finals, which laid the foundations for his title win at the Challenger Tour 20 event.

Ramadan, meanwhile, is celebrating her first PSA Tour title win since 2017's DaLian Squash Association China Squash Grand Prix after beating Turmel 11-8, 6-11, 11-4, 11-3 in 51 minutes.

Turmel came into the final after her semi-final fixture with Anna Kimberley was cut short with just 20 minutes played due to an injury to the latter and she drew level after Ramadan took the first.

But the Egyptian player redoubled her efforts and controlled the final two games to claim her fifth PSA Tour crown.
