India’s Aditya Jagtap annexes 4th PSA title

Agency News

Chennai, Feb 17 : Top seeded Indian Aditya Jagtap annexed the title in the BourbonTrail-3, PSA Challenger Squash event at Louisville in United States on Sunday.

A release from SRFI here said Aditya earlier marched into the final before annexing the title defeating Muhammad Bilal of Italy 11-9, 11-9, 13-11 in the title clash. This is Aditya's fourth PSA title of his career. Aditya did not lose a single game right through the tournament, beating Alexander Scott of USA in the first round, then fifth seed Cory McCartney of Canada for a place in the semi-final.

In the last four stage, he defeated fourth seeded Pakistani Syed Hamzah Bukhari 11-6, 11-6, 11-7. The final was a close match with both the players involved in long rallies. Consistency was Aditya's key, as he won the big points just when at 9-9 it seemed anybody's game in the second after winning the first for a 1-0 lead.

The third game saw Bilal forcing the issue to extra points, but Aditya's steady approach and the Italian's unforced errors helped the Indian win the game and the match.UNI
