In 2012, she hopes to enter the top 10 as she continues to compete in the Senior Circuit. In the Junior Circuit, Dipika has already won countless international tournaments, including the British, Australian, German, Dutch, French and Scottish Junior Opens. In 2011, she also became the first Indian to reach the quarterfinals in the World Open.
