India's Saurav Ghosal defeats World No. 11 to reach Macau Open final
- Ghosal recorded a narrow 3-2 win.
Macau: India's leading player Saurav Ghosal stormed into the final of the $ 50,000 Macau Open, a major PSA world tour event here on Saturday
The Indian national champion, seeded four ousted the top seed Simon Rosner of Germany in five games 11-5, 5-11, 11-6, 11-13, 11-4 in a pulsating semi-final. Not in recent times have these two met at any event. Besides the Indian at 28 in world ranking was way down the 11th spot that the German was. But that did not unsettle Ghosal who showed his characteristic fight and ensured victory in what proved a topsy turvy tussle.
In the title round, Ghosal will meet the second seed Egyptian Mohamed Abouelghar.
