London (Canada): Top seeded Vikram Malhotra has moved into final of the Nash Cup 2019, a PSA challenger event here late on Friday.

Vikram defeated the fourth seed Leonel Cardenas of Mexico in four games 7-11, 11-7, 11-4, 11-6 in a well contested semi-final. It took time for the Indian to settle down into a rhythm. He even lost the first game before regaining the winning touch. Interestingly when the two met the previous time in another tournament a year ago Vikram had struggled over five games before emerging winner.

In the title match Vikram will play the second seed Auguste Dussourd of France,an opponent whom he had never met before.
