Joshna Chinappa's memorable run in the Women's Black Ball Squash Open came to an end after she went down fighting against world number five Joelle King in the quarterfinals of the PSA gold event here.
Seeded three, King won the 64-minute engrossing match 7-11, 12-10, 2-11, 11-5, 11-8 to become the only non-Egyptian to enter the last four on Wednesday.
It was a tight match with Joshna leading 2-1 at one stage. But as the experienced New Zealander was to admit, she had to dig deep into her reserves to ensure that the Indian was not going to have it easy. As the contest wore on, Joshna's lost the earlier grip and that turned the match firmly in King's favour.
