Dipika Pallikal: End of the road at Alexandria

Dipika Pallikal won only the second game

The Egyptian took a healthy lead of 8-2 in the first game before an aggressive Dipika Pallikal made a comeback. The Indian ace picked up six points in a row to even the score at 8-8. However, Raneem El Welily was too good in the end and closed it out at 11-9.

The second game was a mirror image of the first where once again, it was Raneem who inched ahead 5-1. A determined Dipika once more staged an impressive recovery to score seven consecutive points and ultimately took the second game 11-9.

Pallikal put up a tremendous performance in the third game. With excellent movement all over the court, she was always in the lead and even had a game ball at 10-9. However, buoyed by the crowd, the Egyptian player made her way back and scraped through to win the third game 12-10.

However, the Indian got tired from her efforts in the third game and could hardly provide any resistance in the fourth game. Raneem El Welily wrapped up the match 11-9, 9-11, 12-10, 11-3.

    I have seen plenty of useful things on your web page about computers. However, I have the impression that laptop computers are still less than powerful more than enough to be a sensible choice if you usually do things that require lots of power, like video touch-ups. But for website surfing, word processing, and majority of other common computer work they are all right, provided you do not mind the small screen size. Thank you sharing your ideas.

    I have really learned newer and more effective things by your blog. One other thing I would really like to say is the fact newer personal computer os's tend to allow additional memory to use, but they in addition demand more memory space simply to function. If people's computer can't handle extra memory as well as the newest software requires that memory increase, it might be the time to shop for a new Laptop or computer. Thanks
