Saurav Ghosal celebrated the biggest PSA World Tour title win of his career at the METROsquash Windy City Open, the PSA International 25 squash event at the University Club of Chicago in Chicago, USA.
The top seed faced Pakistan qualifier Yasir Butt, a 23-year-old from Lahore whose giant-killing run in the event included the scalps of three higher-ranked opponents.
Ghosal recovered to win the first two games, but Butt reduced the deficit after the third. The six-time Indian champion neutralised Butt from the start of the fourth, quickly establishing a 5-1 lead. Butt was unable to close the gap as Ghosal powered on to secure his title-winning 11-8, 15-13, 10-12, 11-5 victory.
The success marks the fifth Tour title of Ghosal’s career.
