Todd Harrity has reached his first PSA final in three years and will vie for the biggest title of his career against India’s Mahesh Mangaonkar in the $20,000 HCL SRFI Indian Tour final Friday, April 2, in Chennai.

Harrity, world No. 52, entered the tournament as the two seed in what was his fifth PSA appearance since the resumption of the tour in the fall and first on the Challenger Tour level.

The thirty-year-old American reached the semifinals courtesy of two three game victories over Russian Vladislav Titov and Egyptian Aly Hussein to set up an encounter against three seed and world No. 58 Karim El Hammamy.

On Thursday, Harrity recorded his first career win against the Egyptian in their third career match up, advancing to the final 11-8, 11-9, 8-11, 11-1 after fifty-three minutes.

Harrity won his most recent encounter against Mangaonkar, world No. 47,in the 2018 Madeira International Open semifinals in five games–also Harrity’s most recent title run.
