Cairo: India’s leading squash player Joshna Chinappa crashed out in the pre-quarterfinals of the CIB PSA Women’s World Championship after a straight game defeat to top seed Nour El Sherbini.

Joshna, ranked 12th in the world, went down 5-11 3-11 6-11 in the round of 16 match on Monday night.

The three-time world champion El Sherbini produced a dominant performance to comfortably take the opening two games. Chinappa put up more of a fight in the third but the Egyptian sealed the match.

It was Joshna’s second consecutive loss to the Egyptian. She had gone down 1-3 at the JP Morgan China Squash Open in 2017.

“Joshna has been on form from the start of this season. I’m really happy that I managed to win 3-0. I think I felt sharper tonight,” El Sherbini was quoted as saying by psaworldtour.com.
