India’s top-ranked squash player Saurav Ghosal outclassed Swiss rival Nicolas Mueller to win the USD 50,000 CCI International JSW Indian Squash Circuit on Friday.
Third seed Ghosal had things very much his way as he drubbed his fifth-seeded Swiss opponent 11-6, 11-8, 11-8 in a one-sided final. The 31-year-old Kolkata-born national champion cruised to the seventh professional title of his career.
Ghosal said, “I’m happy to win in India. It’s my biggest PSA win as well in a 50000 USD tournament. In September I made the final in Macau, but lost. I have taken a lot of care of my body this week and I am happy it’s worth it. I played some great matches and I played good squash in majority of the tournament. That’s the important thing for me now.”
He also wished there were more such tournaments in the country to help up and coming players. “Hopefully we can make it bigger and have more tournaments all over India. This will help not just me, but those who are playing the PSA and the juniors who can watch us more regularly, not just once a year,” he said.
