Dipika Pallikal lost in the semi-final of the San Fransisco Squash Open

San Fransisco: Dipika Pallikal Karthik’s dream run ends at the semi-final stage with former world champion and a legend Nicol David of Malaysia defeating her in straight games 11-3, 11-0, 11-5 here on Friday in the Oracle Netsuite San Fransisco Open, a $50,000 PSA world tour event.

Unlike in the earlier rounds, the Indian was never allowed the freedom to showcase her capability with Nicol taking just 22 minutes to finish off a swift job and make it to the final.
