New York:

Joshna Chinappa's giant killing run ended when wild card Joelle King of New Zealand beat her in the semifinals of the USD 50,000 Carol Weymuller Open here.

     

Joshna, who reached the last four after also playing the qualifying rounds, ran out of steam to go down 4-11, 11-9, 4-11, 8-11 on Sunday night.

     

After the fine touch she showed earlier, the Indian could not withstand the storm that Joelle proved to be. On a comeback after an Achilles injury had forced her off the circuit for a while, the former world number four showed she had not lost much in her sharpness.

      

The accurate returns with early pick ups kept Joshna away to the back. Though the Indian fought back with her prowess up front, to grab the second game, Joelle never showed any signs of tiredness or weakness on her legs as she went about business-like giving little leeway to finish off the match 3-1.
