Top seeds in the men’s and women’s section, Mahesh Mangaonkar (Maharashtra) and Joshna Chinappa (TN), continued to remain trouble-free as they sailed into the semi-finals of the HCL-National Squash Championship here on Friday.
There was some interest in the Vikram Malhotra-Gaurav Nandrajog match. Gaurav grabbed the first game, but the trend halted there as the US-based Vikram, a regular on the professional circuit, reeled off the next three to make it an easy outing overall.
