It seems Ramit is going through a purple patch in this ongoing CCI International ... After his first-round upset win over top-50 player Ramit created huge upset beating top-20 experienced Spanish player, Borja Golan ... He started winning the first game but Borja fought back for winning next two ... After 1-2 down Ramit kept fighting and won the fourth game comfortably ... In the final game, both players were neck to neck but Ramit kept his nerve on big points for winning the match ... Next, he is playing Swiss player, Nicolas Müller.

Saurav also reached into the semis beating Makin in four games ... Next, he is facing Omar Mosaad, who scored a comeback win over Harry ... Harry won the first 2 games but after that Omar made a strong comeback for winning next three games.

At $50K Men's CCI International 2017, Mumbai, India

Saurav continued with his recent terrific form ... He defeated former WR #3 Omar Mosaad in four games ... After losing the first game he made a strong comeback for winning next game ... Omar tried hard in the third and the fourth but Saurav won both games playing solid on important points ... In the final, he is facing Müller, who defeated Ramit.

Ramit was tired after playing the long match against Golan and Müller took full advantage of it after beating him in the straight games.
