Overview

Men's Event

Number one seed Adrian Waller overcame home hope Mahesh Mangaonkar in a 3-1 victory to capture the NSCI Open JSW Indian Squash Circuit, PSA M15 title in front of a partizan crowd.

The energetic Englishman saw off Mangaonkar’s compatriot Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu in the quarter-final before dispatching talented Egyptian qualifier Karim El Hammamy in the pair’s semi-final matchup. Mangaokar saw off Ben Coleman and Mazen Gamal in two testing ties to advance to the final stage of the event.

Waller seized control of the match from the outset and carried his dominance into the second game where he conceded just two points to his opponent.

Mangaonkar altered his game plan in the third game to great effect with a number of superb drop shots drawing some unforced errors from Waller to send the match into a fourth game.

Waller rallied though and the World No.26 upped the pace to climb to an 11-9, 11-2, 12-14, 11-6 triumph to capture the fifth PSA World Tour title of his career.

Women's Event

Indian No.2 Joshana Chinappa came out on top in the final of the NSCI Open JSW Indian Squash Circuit, PSA W15 tournament after a brilliant display against number one seed Habiba Mohamed.

Chinappa saw off the dangerous qualifier Lee Ka Yi in the quarter-final before sweeping past Fiona Moverley in the next round. Mohamed’s victory over Millie Tomlinson in the last eight stage set her up with an encounter against the promising qualifier Hania El Hamammy and, after going two games down to the younger Egyptian, she fought back to claim the victory.

Buoyed by the support of her home crowd, Chinappa started strongly in the final, trading a number of absorbing blows with Mohamed before rising into an 11-8 victory.

The World No.24 suffered an injury at the start of the second game after being caught in the face by an errant swing from Mohamed but, after a slow start, recovered to take a two game advantage heading into the third game.

Both competitors kept up the pressure during the final game but a number of errors from Mohamed allowed Chinappa to build up an unassailable lead to complete an 11-8, 11-9, 11-6 victory and lift the title.

“It was good,” said Chinappa.

“I think I played well. I was just thinking [after the injury] that I hoped I would recover because I was in so much pain. Luckily, it only lasted about 10 minutes.

“I was quite warm and that helped me get back on court faster. It all worked out. The crowd was great, they really helped.”

Result – Final: NSCI Open JSW Indian Squash Circuit 2015
[3] Joshana Chinappa (IND) bt [1] Habiba Mohamed (EGY) 3-0: 11-8, 11-9, 11-6 (47m)
