A hugely successful junior player, Joshana Chinappa is one of the leading Indian women on the PSA World Tour.
She became the first ever Indian player to win a British Junior Open title in 2005 when she took the U19 crown after she already had the distinction of appearing at a Tour final in the Centenary Cup a year earlier.
Her first Tour title came at the 2008 NSC Super Satellite No.3 and her second title came just a week later with Low Wee Wern missing out on the title on both occassions.
She won her first Tour title in Europe when she triumphed at the German Ladies Open in 2010 and added the Windy City Open to her trophy cabinet a year later, beating compatriot Dipika Pallikal in the final.
The Indian missed the second half of 2011 through injury but came back impressively in 2012 as she romped to the Chennai Open crown on home-soil.
2014 saw Chinappa claim both the Winter Club Women's Open and the Richmond Open before she teamed up with Pallikal to become the first ever Indian players to claim a gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games Doubles event.
She nearly triumphed at the HKFC International 25 title in May 2015 but dropped out at the semi-final stage to Annie Au.
A successful summer then saw Chinappa win both the Victorian Open and NSCI Open, while she finished as a runner-up at the HKFC International at the end of the 2015/16 season.
July 2016 saw Chinappa break into the world’s top 10 for the first time and she came close to winning the Otters International on home soil, eventually losing out to Hong Kong’s Annie Au.
Chinappa also went onto win the Asian Championship in 2017, overcoming fellow Indian Dipika Pallikal Karthik in the final.
