Ghosal and Chinappa win Indian Nationals

SH_067Saurav Ghosal defended his eighth National title — last seven in-a-row — with a hard-fought victory over second seed Harinder Pal Sandhu while Joshana Chinappa bagged her 11th national title crown, defeating Anaka Alankamony.

It took a little over 20 minutes for the top seed Ghosal to tame a fighting Sandhu. The scoreline of 11-5, 11-4, 11-3 not only misled the intensity of the contest but also the spirit the two ‘best friends’ displayed on the court. Ghosal’s experience and superior overall game ensured the world no. 21 won in staring games.

Joshana powered her way to winning yet another national title. Having won her first national title at the age of 14 Joshana inched closer to equal Ms. B. Kumari’s record of 16 titles.

Anaka the 18-year-old second seed tried hard to match a faster and more experienced opponent only to find the victory eluding her in her third final of her career.
