India’s Saurav Ghosal fell in the quarters of the Grasshopper Cup PSA Gold event in Zurich
Saurav stopped by Momen
Zurich: World number three and third seed Tarek Momen of Egypt proved an insurmountable hurdle as Saurav Ghosal went down in four games in a quarterfinal match late on Friday in the Grasshopper cup tournament, a PSA Gold event being held here. Momen won 9-11, 11-6, 11-6, 14-12.
Nonetheless the eighth seed Indian, an experienced campaigner now, drove an initial scare into his opponent by snatching the first game. The Egyptian acknowledged that dent made him work harder to turn the tempo around but Saurav once again fought his way to the last in the fourth game before going down on extra points. The 68 minute-match was the longest among the quarterfinal matches.
