WSA Granite Open, 25k (17-20 Feb’15)

Freshly crowned British National champion Sarah-Jane Perry was in great touch and showed it with a well fought 8-11, 11-6, 12-10, 11-7 win over India’s Dipika Pallikal in the final of the $25000 WSA-Granite Open in Toronto. This is Sarah-Jane’s eighth WSA title in her career and also her second win in this prestigious tournament.

Third seed Dipika seemed to start off from where she left in the semi-final against her country mate Joshna Chinappa and comfortably bagged the first game to raise happy visions. However, Sarah- Jane, who was seeded four, cut down her unforced errors and soon caught up and turned the intensity up. Drawing away midway the British player grabbed the second and prepared herself for a tough third game. Once she managed to down Dipika in the third, the path to victory became easier. Dipika did give a fight in the next, even led briefly midway but Sarah-Jane could not be denied her moment of joy.
