Report from the Hindu

Too bad we play Egypt as it means the end of the road for us. What a good showing -- Joshna recently came back from an injury and her match fitness may not be at its peak else Egypt would have had a fight on its hands in the QF. Anaka Alankamony won the live rubber against Ireland -- is she another top player in the making?

Egyptian girls defeated our girls without losing a single game in the quarter-final ... Though our top 2 players gave decent performance against top-10 players and Dipika managed to stretch WR #2 Raneem El Weleily to extra points in the first game ... For 5 yo 8th placing our girls will be playing against Hong Kong.

We have already beaten Ireland once -- hope our gals can repeat it to achieve our best ever position by some margin at the Worlds.
