Saurav Ghosal's campaign in the Egyptian Open squash ends

Saurav Ghosal

Bengaluru, October 28: Saurav Ghosal's campaign at the CIB Egyptian Squash Open came to an end at the hands of Egypt's World No.14 Fares Dessouky in round three of the PSA World Tour Platinum tournament held in front of the Great Pyramids of Giza.

The 33-year-old had never beaten Dessouky and the Egyptian ensured that clean streak of form continued as he put the experienced Indian to the sword in straight games with a confident display.

Alexandria-born Dessouky, who defeated Germany's world No.6 Simon Rosner in the last round, played with unrelenting pace to constantly keep Ghosal moving around the court and never allowing the Indian to settle into his game plan to take an 11-6, 11-5, 11-5 victory in 42 minutes.

"I played really well," said 25-year-old Dessouky following his win.

"Saurav is one of the trickiest players on tour, so I had to be focused for the whole match and play very solid and I'm happy to be through."
