Hull: The Indian challenge in the Allam British Open squash championship ended here Thursday as Joshna Chinappa lost 1-3 to Joelle King of New Zealand in the quarter-finals.

King seemed to be in control when she jumped to a 2-0 lead, but in the third game, the Kiwi seemed to relax a bit, slowing down the pace a bit and losing control of the T.

That was perfect for Chinappa who rushed to the front and punished King to take the game and stay in the match. However, King reacted well by taking the fourth set, losing just one point, for a 11-6, 11-7, 8-11, 11-1 win in 43 minutes.
