Ghosal beats Momen again at Grasshopper Cup

April 17, 2015 21:30 IST

India's top male squash player Saurav Ghosal upstaged World No.7 Tarek Momen for the second successive time this month to enter the quarter-finals at the PSA Grasshopper Cup.

There was less drama as compared to their last contest in Egypt earlier in month as 23-ranked Ghosal got past Momen 11-9, 4-11, 11-4, 11-6 in an opening round match held. He had beaten the Egyptian in five gruelling games at El Gouna.

Ghosal had to win two matches to qualify for the main draw of the $70,000 event.

"The atmosphere is great here. It has been a while since I beat Simon, so it is going to be a tough one," Ghosal said.
