TNSRA closed circuit squash

Gaurav Nandrajog picked up his second title in a row when he edged Harinder Pal Singh in five gruelling games on Saturday in the TNSRA closed circuit squash tournament.Gaurav won 5-11, 11-10 (2-0), 10-11 (0-2), 11-10 (6-4), 11-9, the match lasting 73 minutes. It was a tight contest and not until the final point was played was the victor clear. Harinder twice faltered at the threshold. First time he was on game ball in the second game. Then he spurned a ‘match ball’ moment in the fourth game. Gaurav showed his fighting qualities and steely nerves to claw back. The final game was also close but Gaurav was able to ensure victory. The sixth circuit in this TNSRA series will be played next week.

Semifinals: Harinder bt A. Parthiban 11-6, 11-7, 11-8; Gaurav bt Naresh Kumar 10-11 (1-3), 9-11, 11-2, 11-2, 11-10 (3-1).
