Manish still going strong

At 35, Manish Chotrani’s excellent fitness  and court craft enables him to beat younger players in Mumbai.  He defeated Vikas Jangra to lift the men’s singles title in the Rs 52,000 prize money KG-NECC Mumbai Open Squash Championship, which concluded at the Khar Gymkhana Squash Courts, on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old Chotrani matched the fitter and younger Jangra from Indian Navy stroke for stroke, racing to two-game lead, before taking a breather of sorts in the third, which he lost and coming back in the fourth strongly to jut demolish the second-seeded player. Chotrani won 11-8, 11-7, 5-11, 11-4 to pocket the winner’s purse of Rs 8,000. It was Chotrani’s second major title in four days.
