Joshi settles for silver

Birmingham: Neel Joshi put in his best effort but top seed Sam Todd of England was even better as he carved out a 3-1 win to clinch the boys under-15 gold at the British Junior Open squash here on Sunday.

Joshi settled for the silver and thus became the sole Indian to win a medal in this year’s edition.

Todd won 8-11, 16-14, 11-0, 14-12 and as the scoreline suggested, Joshi, seeded 3/4, had begun well. Tidy in his returns and swift on his feet, he grabbed the first game but the local player drew ahead from there.

In the fourth game, Neel looked good to level the game scores and even enjoyed a game-ball and then saved a match-ball but the fight ended soon after.

Tushar Shahani lost in the under-17 semifinal to top seed Omar El Torkey of Egypt. El Torkey won 9-11, 11-2, 11-3, 11-8.
