Dipika Pallikal: Hopes Dashed

Dipika Pallikal held a slender lead in first game

World no. 18 Dipika Pallikal held a slender lead of 4-1 in the first game before sixth seed Camille Serme took control of the match. Attacking with authority, she maintained the lengths of her strokes throughout the contest which troubled the Indian. Pallikal looked out of sorts and her mounting errors at the front did not help her cause. The Frenchwoman ran away with the match in 26 minutes.

Camille Serme quotes

After defeating Dipika Pallikal, a beaming Camille Serme said she was very happy to advance to the quarter-finals as she had not done well in the past two years.

“Very happy! I was a bit nervous to start with as I haven’t done well here in the last couple of years so I was keen to do well. I managed to quickly find a good length which was the key to the match, Dipika is very dangerous if you give her anything loose to attack. Looking forward to the quarter-finals now!”

Indian challenge wraps up at British Open

Thus, the Indian challenge ended at the oldest squash tournament, often referred to as the ‘Wimbledon of Squash’. Earlier, Asian Individual Squash Championship bronze medallist Joshna Chinappa had bowed out in the first round with a four-game loss to former champion Laura Massaro.

In the men’s event, Asian Games gold medallist, Saurav Ghosal was knocked out in the opening round after a straight-game defeat to World No. 12 Borja Golan. In men’s qualifying, Mahesh Mangaonkar could not get past the first round. The Indian went down to Greg Lobban of Scotland in straight games.

Here’s hoping for better results from the Indian squash brigade in the next tournament.
