Guatam Das reports

Highest world ranked Indian star Dipika Pallikal clinched her maiden national title when she dropped a game before winning against Tamil Naduís Anaka Alankamony 11-7, 8-11, 11-4, 11-7, while Defending men's champion Saurav Ghosal came from behind to beat HarinderPal Sandhu 8-11, 11-6, 11-3, 11-1 in the finals of the National Squash Championship here today.

In the womenís final, Anaka gave good account of her game against a highly seeded world star but Dipika made short work in clinching the title.. Anaka tried her best keep Dipika in check but the latter always wriggled out of the rival clutches to come up with some delectable shots for points.  In earlier years, Dipikaís try at the title were ended by Joshna Chinappa, who could not compete in this nationals due to injury problems

The menís final seem to be heading for a tight finish as both Saurav and Harinder were going neck to neck and it looked as though Harinder was not going to give away easily. Harinder clinched the first game withhis strategy to stay at back court and keeping the pace at high levels and then get his shots to success. However, Saurav, who has bundle of experience having been in the circuit for longer time meant business and kept Harinder at bay in the next three games.

Sauravís tactic of keeping the ball away from his opponent worked wonders. Though Harinder, at times, tried to make good to deny Saurav the ground to play his shots from back court, the latter refused to give in and merely kept the volleys long and then went for his shots to upset Harinder.

Later, M.Vijayakuar I.A.S, Member Secretary, Sports Development Corporation of Tamil Nadu and Srivastan Subramaniam , Secretary General SRFI gave away the prizes to the winners.

Saurav, who beat Ravi Dixit 11-4,11-7, 11-6. In the other menís semi finals, Harinder had to bring in his best resources to good effect and actually his decision to adapt waiting game helped greatly as Siddharth was seen time and again went for shots with aggression and paid the penalty in committing errors. Though Siddharth could have avoided such display, particularly knowing the strengths of Harinder.

The whole match witnessed replete of rallies and Harinder in particular did not exert much as his decision to keep the ball in play helped him to come up with drops to break the rallies. Siddarthís errors mainly came from his front court play.

The third game was interesting as Siddharth who fought back managed to be match ball up. Here, Harinder kept to his basics and displayed his skills in playing the drop shots at appropriate times. However, Harinder finished off the set and the match with a superbly executed boast, which Siddharth responded hitting the tin.

Expectedly, Top seed in thewomen's event Dipika Pallikal, Indiaís highest world ranked women star had another easy run against Ankita Sharma of Maharashtra 11-2, 11-6, 11-5 but faces a tough customer in Anaka Alankamony in the final tomorrow.
