Joshna Chinappa article

Aiming to clinch her seventh national title, Joshna Chinappa today said her differences with the Squash and Rackets Federation of India (SRFI) were a thing of the past and she now had its full backing.”There is no point in being at loggerheads with the federation and those grey areas are past now. The federation has given me a call to help me in my endeavours to climb up the ladder on the world scene,” Joshna, the lone Indian woman to win the British Open title, told reporters on the sidelines of 55th ICL National Squash Championship here.”I am confident that before the end of the year, I would go up by a few notches and tread on the path to make the top-10 in rankings,” the Chennai girl, ranked 39th in WISPA rankings, said. Joshna, the youngest Indian to hold both senior and junior national titles as a 14-year-old in 2000, said she decided to coach under Englishman Malcolm Willstrop as her former Egyptian coach was too soft and lenient. “Malcolm is more technically sound and I love training under him mainly because he is strict and insistent on discipline and work ethics,” she added.
