Sandhu ousts Yash in National Squash

Chennai :

The experienced Harinder Pal Sandhu quelled the youthful exuberance of Yash Fadte, beating him in straight games on Thursday to storm into the semifinals of the men’s singles in the 77th Senior National Squash Championship at the ISA courts here.

Meanwhile, Delhi’s Sanya Vats, a former junior star, ousted the seasoned and higher seeded Urwashi Joshi of Maharashtra in the women’s singles.

Sandhu, seeded in the 3-4 bracket, gave a lesson in stroke-play to the young Goan (seeded 5/8), winning 11-7, 11- 2, 11-7 to book a spot in the last four.

The top seeds in the men’s and women’s sections respectively-Saurav Ghosal and Joshna Chinappa- had no trouble in advancing to the semifinals.
