Round 1

Amani Wins Back-To-Back Events

Two weeks after winning her maiden Tour title, Malaysia’s Ainaa Amani doubled up with a victory at the Vikram Goyal SRFI Open in India.

The 21-year-old secured her first win on Tour at the Hong Kong Squash Challenge Cup last month, and came into this Challenger 10 level event in Delhi as the tournament’s No.3 seed.

After receiving a bye through the opening day’s action, she then defeated two Indians to make the last four. Amani got the better of Sanika Choudhari in the second round, before then beating No.5 seed Tanvi Khanna in four games to make it through to the semi-finals.

In the last four, the young Malaysian came up against top seed Cheng Nga Ching. She has beaten the Hongkonger in the final on her opponent’s home soil to win her maiden Tour title just two weeks earlier. Once again, it was the World No.90 that cruised to victory, winning in straight games.

The final also lasted less than half an hour, as Amani won in three once more. It was a tour challenge for the 21-year-old, but she won 11-8, 11-9, 11-9 to defeat Egypt’s Haya Ali, the No.7 seed. This was her biggest win to date on the Tour, and Amani now has back-to-back victories.

The final event of the week will be the Vikram Goyal SRFI Open, which will take place at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium in Delhi, India.

The Challenger 10 level women’s tournament will take place from Saturday, April 1 to Wednesday, April 5, with a 24-strong draw. Three members of the world’s top 100 will be in action this week in Delhi.

The Hong Kong duo of Cheng Nga Ching and Ching Hei Fung will be the top two seeds. Ching, the World No.80, will be the leading woman in the draw. She will be aiming to secure her first win since December 2021, and to make up for losing her last five finals on Tour.

Compatriot Fung beat her fellow Hongkonger to claim her maiden Tour title at the Eastside Open in September 2022. She will be the No.2 seed this week, and will be seeded to reach the final. Malaysia’s Ainaa Amani and Egypt’s Nadeen Kotb make up the rest of the top four seeds, with Amani in good form after claiming her first Tour victory recently.

The Malaysian was the winner at the Hong Kong Squash Challenge Cup just two weeks ago. She defeated this week’s top seed, Ching, in the final, to secure her maiden title. Kotb, the No.4 seed, will be joined by fellow Egyptians Nour Ramy, Haya Ali and Salma El Aify in the top eight seeds, with India’s Tanvi Khanna being the leading home hope.

Khanna will be one of seven Indians in action on home soil this week, with the likes of Sanika Choudhari, Janet Vidhi and Anjali Semwal among those featuring. Plenty of other nations will be represented, with Ukraine’s Anastasiia Kostiukova, Serbian Jelena Dutina and Singapore’s Leia Lee Zi Fang all playing.
