After a hugely successful junior career in the sport, Joshna Chinappa has gone on to cement herself as the Indian No.1 in recent years, and has also reclaimed a place in the world’s top ten.
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 the Indian 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. She came runner-up in the Hong Kong International in 2017, losing out to Nour El Tayeb in the final. The Indian then reached the quarter finals of three major tournaments in 2018. She made the last eight in the El Gouna International, China Open and the Carol Weymuller Open, before also reaching that stage at the Black Ball Open in 2019. Chinappa then made it to the last four of the Macau Open a month later.
In her first event of the 2019-2020 season, the Indian No.1 reached the semi-finals of the Oracle NetSuite Open after defeating New Zealand’s Joelle King in the earlier stages. She also reached the last four of the Cleveland Classic in February, and moved her way back into the top ten in the World Rankings in the summer.
The Indian No.1 made her first appearance back on the tour after the COVID-19 suspension at the CIB Egyptian Open, where she reached the quarter-finals, one of three unseeded female players to do so. Chinappa also made it into the quarter finals of both the Squash on Fire Open and the Oracle NetSuite Open in 2021, before making it back inside the top ten in the World Rankings for the start of 2022.
