Ravi Dixit created history today by becoming the first Indian male to win an Asian Squash title at the Asian Junior Individual Championship held at Colombo, Sri Lanka from 7-10 July 2010.
Ravi Dixit, a product of the Indian Squash Academy, made history by becoming the first Indian to win the Under-19 boys’ title in the Asian junior squash championship (Individuals) in Colombo on Saturday. Dixit played and won what easily must have been the best match of his career. Down two games and staring at defeat with a match point down against the second seed Pakistan player Waqas Mehboob, the Indian fought back splendidly to defy all odds. Dipika got over a brief phase of uncertainty when her concentration lagged to put it across Malaysia’s Low Wee Nee in four games 11-8, 12-10, 10-12, 11-8. In the previous edition, Dipika had lost to Nee’s sister Wern in the final. Dipika became the first player ever to win both the u15 & u19 Asian title.
