El Gouna (Egypt): A determined Joshna Chinappa threw in her best but second seed Camille Serme of France took in everything before finding the winning path in the fifth game to outdo the Indian in the quarterfinal of the Women's world squash championship here on Wednesday.
The winning scores of 11-6, 10-12, 11-7, 8-11, 11-3 spoke volumes of the 70 minute tussle that saw fortunes changing hands and more importantly the kind of fight Joshna had given to the senior rival. Camille, according to reports, had played several winners and infact had led twice in this engrossing contest but Joshna pegged her rival back with determination. It was only in the deciding fifth game that Camille pulled clear and race away to win. “Never have I seen Joshna playing at such high level,” said the French champion thereafter and the Indian could not have earned a greater compliment.
