It was a disappointing day for second seed Saurav Ghosal at the CCI Open Squash Championships. The Indian had a remarkable journey to enter the finals, however facing the top seed is never easy.
Saurav Ghosal fails to make a comeback
Borja Golan, top seed at the tournament ended Ghosal’s superb run, making him look average in the finals. The Indian went down without putting up a tough fight in the best of five, losing 11-6, 11-4, 10-12 and 11-5.
This was the Spaniard’s first title since 2013. Golan was clearly the better player on the day, hitting 30 winners.
After the loss, Saurav Ghosal said, “He was very sharp today. I couldn’t get him into uncomfortable positions for long enough to do what I wanted. Credit to Borja, he played well. I had two hard matches this week, but, you know, that’s what you train for. I just couldn’t play well enough, for long enough, to beat him. Congrats to him.”
