Sourabh Won Chinese Taipei Title

2019 ias preliminary exam test series

Sourabh Verma clinched the men’s singles title at the Chinese Taipei Open after defeating Malaysia’s Daren Liew in the summit clash of the $55,000 Grand Prix tournament.

The 23-year-old from Madhya Pradesh rallied to grab the first two games and emerged victorious after his opponent Liew retired in the third game due to a shoulder injury with the scoreline reading 12-10 12-10 3-3 in the Indian’s favour.

It was a case of being third time lucky as Sourabh, who had ended runners-up at Belgium and Poland international challengers, finally crossed the finishing line after spending almost a year on the sidelines due to elbow and knee injuries last year.
