Saurav aims to break into top 10

New Delhi: Squash star Saurav Ghosal has set out a clear agenda to win medals at the Commonwealth and Asian Games in 2014 following his impressive run this year, which saw him clinch one of the biggest PSA Tour titles of his career.

“The year has been pretty good for me. I would like to carry on my good show on the circuit in 2014 and make the semis and finals of the big events on the regular basis. My target for the next year is to bring glory to the nation in the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games,” Ghosal said.

“I played well in most of the PSA events. There’s always a scope to get better at things. I played against a lot of good players this year and came up with good performances,” he added.

It has been quite an eventful year for India’s No.1 men’s player Ghosal, who rose to a career-high of 15th in the world rankings riding on his historic appearance in the World Squash Championship in Manchester.

Ghosal had created history by becoming the first Indian male player to reach the quarter final of the Championship where he suffered a straight-game defeat against world No. 1 Ramy Ashour.
