A friend who watched said that Saurav got hit on the mouth during the match, but played on despite the injury.
He seems to have stagnated at these ranking levels in the past couple of years. Good to see, however, that the prize money in squash is becoming a bit more meaningful.

@Suresh: I typed this one yesterday and then refrained from posting, thinking it will be too sarcastic. I had a laugh when I saw your post :). Thanks!

But, it did not work as Saurav lost. The trick will only work when Saniapower does it. ;)

Close but no cigar. Saurav from West Bengal fought really hard. These are big money events (not a $10K event recently held in australia where Dipika prevailed), so naturally there will be tough competitions. But why Egyptians are doing so well in Squash(both men & women)! What's in their DNA!
