ALL WISPA INDIAN TOURNAMENT RESULTS FROM 2008
Joshna wins her maiden WISPA crown in Chennai : 27th May 2012
Joshna Chinappa bagged her maiden WISPA crown — sixth overall — in her hometown, hardly seven months after recovering from a major knee surgery. The 25-year-old Indian gave it her all in scripting a 9-11, 11-4, 11-8, 12-10 win over England's Sarah Jane Perry in the final of the Chennai Open $10,000 women's squash tournament at the Indian Squash Academy.
Shrugging off a hesitant start where she lost her first game, Joshna came back strongly in the second. Sarah made a lot of uncharacteristic errors especially on the backhand. Joshna took a 7-3 lead, her confidence started to grow and she beat Sarah in the second 11-4.
After taking the third game in a pretty close battle, Joshna held the mental edge. But it was Sarah who started off well, running away to a 7-3 lead in the fourth. Joshna didn't give up as she retrieved exceptionally to equalise at seven each.
Ranked eleven places below Sarah at 71, Joshna had two match points at 10-8, but Sarah saved both. At 11-10, Joshna was lucky to get a ‘let', and then a backhand error from Sarah saw Joshna win the title.
“It's great to win my first title in Chennai after being in the final twice earlier. I'm grateful to be playing, let alone winning. Winning is a bonus,” said Joshna, who received $1900 and 350 ranking points.
