Ghosal Takes Chennai Open Title

Indian favourite Saurav Ghosal was in devastating form in the final of the ICL Chennai Open Squash Championship at the ICL Squash Academy in Chennai where he crushed his second-seeded opponent Wai Hang Wong in just 21 minutes to keep the PSA Tour title in domestic hands for the third year in a row.

 

The 20-year-old from Chennai beat Honk Kong's Wong 11-3, 11-2, 11-3, thus making up for the disappointment of a runners-up finish in the event three years ago.

 

The triumph marks Indian National champion Ghosal's second PSA Tour title success - his first being at the Otters Open in Mumbai last September.

 

Ghosal & Lau To Contest Chennai Open Final

Top-seeded Indian Saurav Ghosal will face Hong Kong's Dick Lau in the final of the ICL Chennai Open Squash Championship after hard-fought victories in today's (Friday) semi-finals of the PSA Tour event at ICL Squash Academy in the Indian city of Chennai.

 

Third seed Lau upset second seed Wai Hang Wong 7-11, 11-4, 11-9, 9-11, 11-6 in 45 minutes in his first win over his fellow countryman for two years.

 

While Lau is celebrating his third appearance in a PSA Tour final, Ghosal is marking his fourth.  The 20-year-old from Chennai was taken to tie-breaks in two games by Egyptian opponent Mohamed El Shorbagy, the fifth seed, before winning 11-9, 11-10 (2-0), 11-10 (2-0).

 

Sharma Shakes Up Chennai Open Seedings

Parth Sharma provided unexpected additional local interest in the quarter-finals of the ICL Chennai Open Squash Championship when he upset sixth seed Yasunori Ishiwata in today's (Wednesday) first round of the PSA Tour event at ICL Squash Academy in the Indian city of Chennai.

 

The 18-year-old from Chennai, in only his maiden year on the Tour, beat his seeded Japanese opponent 11-5, 9-11, 11-9, 11-7 in 36 minutes - and will now face Hong Kong's Dick Lau for a place in the last four.

 

Third seed Lau despatched local qualifier Sujat Barua 11-1, 11-6, 11-6.

 

Top seed Saurav Ghosal celebrated the return to his Chennai base with an 11-1, 11-9, 11-9 victory over fellow countryman B Balamurugan.  The 20-year-old world No42, currently a student at Leeds University in the UK, will now meet eighth seed Naresh Kumar, also from India, who beat Trinidad & Tobago's Colin Ramasra 11-7, 11-8, 9-11, 11-5.
