Joshna Chinnappa lifted her 10th professional title in the Victorian WSA tournament title yesterday evening in Melbourne Australia. Third seeded Chinappa defeated second seeded Line Hansen of Denmark in straight sets of 11-5, 11-4 and 11-9 comfortably. It was a comprehensive win attained in just 32 minutes stay on court. The paradox is she was beaten by the same opposition a week before in Kooyong.  There was thus an additional resolve to avenge that loss I believe that brought the best out of her.Joshna had her last win in the Richmond Open in April last year.

Joshna was on top mixing her strokes and accuracy in the placements right from the beginning and never allowed the opponent to take upper hand at any point of time.

The domination continued in second set also. In third set she did face some resistance as Line fought and brought the score to nine-all, but Joshna managed to pull through and win the set 11-9. It was a hard fought triumph.

 

So far this season, the 28-year-old’s performances in international competition has fluctuated like the readings of an ECG machine. If she has lost early in a tournament she follows it up by advancing to the latter stages of the subsequent one. As Joshna is participating in Australian Open in next few days she stays back and hope will continue her winning streak breaking her trend of ups and downs.

The title in the men’s section went to Australian Ryan Cuskelly who beat Greg Lobban of Scotland 12-10, 13-11, 11-9.
