Saurav Ghosal’s run ended quite abruptly at the World men’s individual squash championship in Bellevue, Washington with the former finalist and England’s James Willstrop stopping him 11-7, 11-7, 11-7 in the second round late on Tuesday.
The two are stablemates, having trained a lot together in Leeds but in their eight meetings earlier James had never let his grip slip. On this occasion, the Englishman, a former finalist was ranked 24th where Ghosal was 17th. The interest was only whether this would turn the table in the Indian’s favour. James showed he knew his friend’s game lot closer to carve his victory route, though it was a fight all the way. Early leads helped James’cause plus the way Saurav slipped into unforced errors. The whole match lasted little over 40minutes but it was action a minute till the last.
