Ghosal loses to Avila in final of squash tourney

Bogota, Aug 9 (IANS) Despite high expectations, India’s champion player Saurav Ghosal ended an otherwise glorious week on a disappointing note going down to giant-killer Alfredo Avila of Mexico 9-11, 11-8, 4-11, 8-11 in the final of the Albierto Colombiano squash tournament.

Ranked 54 in the Professional Squash Association (PSA) register as compared to Ghosal’s 19, the Mexican came to the main draw from the qualifying phase. Avila then beat second seed Peter Barker of England for a place in the final.

Avila’s relentless march saw the Indian go on the backfoot here on Saturday. Barring a brief moment when Ghosal grabbed a game, it was Avila all the way in the 55-minute contest that also brought the Mexican his seventh PSA title.
