Yes, defending champion Gawad raised his game after 0-4 down in the second game ... Still, a good run in the Worlds for Saurav.

Squash has very strange ranking and seeding systems. At the world championship this year, Saurav (ranked 16 then) beat the world #10 (seeded 9) in the first round, but ran into the reigning champion (seeded 4th) in the round of 16. How could three of the world's top-16 be in the same section of the draw (i.e., drawn to play each other before the QF)?!

Such things happens when there are only 8 seeds. I recall Saina (as world no 9) playing world no 8 in R1 of a badminton tournament where a similar ranking was followed.
