Reda Beats Sandhu to Claim Chennai Crown

Number two seed Mohamed Reda came up with a scintillating performance to defeat home favourite Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu in the final of the JSW Indian Squash Circuit Chennai, PSA M10 event and secure his second PSA World Tour title in his last three tournaments.

The Egyptian second seed sealed his spot in the final after an assured 3-0 victory over compatriot Mazen Gamal in the previous round while Sandhu, appearing on home soil, swept to victory against 18-year-old Youssef Soliman.

Game one featured a number of long, engaging rallies before some errors from Sandhu handed Reda three game balls. The Indian No.3 fought back to force a tie-break but Reda stood firm to claim the opener by a 13-11 score line.

The pair traded blow for blow in the second game, with a mix of attritional rallies contrasting with some fantastic artistry at the front of the court. It was unforced errors again that proved to be Sandhu’s undoing as Reda pulled away at the end of the game to double his advantage.

World No.58 Reda surged into an early lead in the third but Sandhu pegged him back with the game evenly poised at the mid-way mark. After a gruelling rally, Sandhu appeared to have gotten the better of his opponent, having edged closer to clawing a game back, but Reda overturned the number one seed’s lead, recording an 13-11, 11-7, 11-9 victory to capture his 13th PSA World Tour title.

“I knew I had a tough challenge playing against Harinder on his home court,” said Reda.

“However, I have played on this court several times so it helped me to win the final. It’s great to win my second tournament in the last month on the PSA World Tour. I will definitely be back next year to play in the JSW Indian Squash Circuit.”

Men's Event

Egyptian qualifier Youssef Soliman came up with the day’s big upset with a fine 3-1 victory over number four seed Mohamed Elgawarhy in the first round of the JSW Indian Squash Circuit Chennai, PSA M10 event.

The 18-year-old, who reached the final of the World Junior Championship back in July, dropped the opening game to his more experienced opponent before battling back to take three games without reply to secure a 7-11, 11-9, 11-6, 11-7 triumph.

Soliman will go up against Abdullah Al Muzayen in the quarter-final after the Asian Games gold medallist defeated compatriot Ammar Altamimi 3-2.

Another qualifier, Mohd Syafiq Kamal, is through to the next round after overcoming Matias Tuomi in four. The Malaysian’s reward us a meeting with top seed Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu in the quarter-final after the Indian No.3 eased by Velavan Senthilkumar in straight games.

Elsewhere, number two seed Mohamed Reda is through to last eight where he will face talented teenager Kush Kumar after the pair scored respective wins against Ravi Dixit and Chi Him Wong.

Joel Makin benefitted from an injury to Muhammad Hannan to reach the next stage and Mazen Gamal will be his opponent there after he saw off Vijay Kumar.

Tsz-Ling Takes Title in Chennai

Liu Tsz-Ling mounted a magnificent come back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat England’s Mille Tomlinson in the final of the JSW Indian Squash Circuit Chenai, PSA W10 tournament.

The number three seed defeated compatriot Tong Tsz-Wing in the semi-final while Tomlinson downed second seed Nouran El Torky in their last four fixture.

The match began with some cagey rallies being played out in front of a capacity crowd and it was Tomlinson who claimed the opener, benefitting from some errors from Tsz-Ling to achieve a 11-7 triumph. Tomlinson started smartly in the second, powering through to an unassailable lead which allowed her to double her advantage.

Tsz-Ling came out fighting in game three and stormed into an emphatic lead, eventually taking it 11-1 after an onslaught of attacking squash. The momentum changed significantly from that moment on as Tsz-Ling came through a tightly-contested fourth game to level proceedings with a 11-8 victory.

The 24-year-old kept her opponent at arm’s length in the fifth and final game and, despite a late revival from Tomlinson in the latter stages, saw the match out with a 7-11, 6-11, 11-1, 11-8, 11-7 to capture her fourth PSA World Tour title of 2015.

“I am very happy as this the biggest tournament I have ever won,” said Tsz-Ling.

“I think I played very well, especially when I was 2-0 down. Even in the semi-final I was 2-1 down. I never give up and I kept telling myself to just focus on the game, point by point and I could win the match.”
