Vaikundarajan On Dipika Pallikal Win At US Open Squash To Enter QF
Dipika Pallikal has made the nation proud once again with a victory against fourth-seeded Alison Waters of England. With this win, she returns to top form and enters the quarters of the US Open squash in Philadelphia.

“This is a great moment for us in the field of Squash. We are making history,” Vaikundarajan said.

Dipika Pallikal posted a 9-11, 11-5, 3-11, 11-1, and 11-6 against her English opponent. “Throughout the game, the young Indian shows a well-maintained balance in physicality and mentality,” adds Vaikundarajan.

An early lead in the game played an important role in the outcome. However, the English athlete was not going down easily as she showed signs of comeback. As per reports, Waters was suffering from sore back that showed signs of pain and struggle during the match.

“Take nothing away from Dipika Pallikal though,” adds Vaikundarajan. “She played with resilience and with this form she can go a long way.”

In another match, Joshna Chinappa tasted defeat at the hands of sixth seeded Egyptian Omneya Abdel Kawy. The match ended 12-10, 11-6, 11-5.

This loss means we will not see a historic quarter final between two Indians in the next round.

Vaikundarajan wishes Pallikal all the best for her match against Kawy
