At IFORHER, we applauding the great achievement of India’s young squash prodigy Anahat Singh. Anahat has made the final of the under-13 girls’ category at the prestigious British Junior Open, beating Egyptian Janna Galal 7-11, 11-7, 13-11, 5-11, 17-15.
The grueling and exciting semifinal belonged to Anahat. After losing the first game, Anahat battled back and took the match in a scintillating fifth game. The excitement reached at the peak in the decider with Janna racing to a 7-1 lead and Anahat catching up and saving four match balls. Soon Janna found herself facing three match balls before Anahat eventually won. The Indian faces another Egyptian, Amina Orfi, the top seed, in the title round.
On the achievement of Anahat, SRFI secretary-general Cyrus Poncha mentioned:
“Absolutely delighted about Anahat reaching the final. Her transition from under-11 to 13 has been extraordinary. We are very proud of her achievement.”
This is not the first time that Anahat Singh has made us proud. Over the last few years, she has garnered various achievements and hence, the reputation for being one of the promising and exciting prospects in the junior squash circuit.
In the final clash, Anahat Singh will have to play really hard to overcome to topple Amina.
We wish Anahat all the best and hope this prodigy would inspire many more Indian women to take up squash as a professional sport.
