Dipika Pallikal lost to defending champion Nicol David of Malaysia in the semifinals at the ongoing Asian Games 2018 here on Saturday (August 25). The Indian squash star was edged by the Malaysian stalwart and former world number one by 0-3 (7-11, 9-11, 6-11) in the semifinals.

Dipika had beaten Japan's Kobayashi Miskai 3-0 in the quarterfinals but she was no match to Nicol David, who came back strongly after losing the second game 9-11.

Joshna Chinappa too took away a bronze medal after losing 3-1 to Malaysia's Sivasangari Subramaniam. This is India's 27th medal so far at Asiad.

After trailing 2-0 against Malaysian, Chinappa pulled back in the third set but failed in the next set to eventually bow out. She too had to settle with a bronze.

With Joshna and Dipika bagging a bronze each and Saurav Ghosal yet to play his semi-final match, it still is India's best performance in singles competition in an Asian Games. In Incheon games, four years ago, Saurav secured a silver and Dipika claimed a bronze.
