Saurav Ghosal (IND) 3-0 Tom Richards (ENG) 11-9, 11-4, 11-1 (31m)
Tom and I grew up together we played in the juniors, then in PSA, and the last match we played was last tournament before the lockdown, Canary Wharf!
He is a quality squash player with great racquet skills, and he can fire at will. So I had to contain him for preventing him from firing those shots.
My basic game was ok, but I was not sharp enough and I was opening the court when I was going short, and he took full advantage of it. I was still a few points ahead, so it gave me a bit of a mental cushion as he always had to catch up.
From the second on, I was more incisive, my length got better and he couldn’t fire as much as he wanted…
