Harinder Pal Sandhu has claimed his third PSA title in a row by beating home favourite Rhys Dowling 11-8, 12-10, 11-4 in the final. Sandhu was the favourite for the title after he upset the top-seeded Dutchman Piedro Schweertman 11-9, 14-12, 7-11, 11-9 in the semi-final, yesterday.
Harinder Pal Sandhu has done it again, winning his third PSA title in a row after taking the South Australian Open title here today. The third-seeded Indian seemed well in line for success in this PSA world Tour event after he edged out the top seed in the semi-final yesterday. In the final Harinder expectedly defeated Rhys Dowling of Australia, the fourth seed in straight games 11-8, 12-10, 11-4.
Sandhu was a part of the Indian squad who won the gold medal at 2014 Asian Games and showed his class in the final as he won it in just 40 minutes. The encounter showcased Sandhu's intent as the 28-year-old sped past to another personal glory. It was in May, his previous outing, that the Indian had won both the Makati Open in Philippine and the Malaysian Tour title in Kuala Lumpur. With the current success, Harinder has now eight PSA titles in his kitty.
