A historic moment for Indian Squash ... Saurav Ghosal becomes the first Indian ever to crack into World top 10 ranking for PSA men's squash ranking ... In new PSA rankings, he is WR #10.

Interestingly our all three top squash players, Dipika, Joshna and Saurav, now have WR #10 is their personal best ... Hoping that Saurav climbs further.

Saurav is in the third round after surprising tough match against a lowly ranked Spanish opponent ... After winning the second game comfortably Saurav was cruising towards straight games win ... But he lost concentration and Lopez took advantage of it and won the next 2 games ... Saurav recovered to win the final game to complete hard-fought win ... Next, he is having a tough match against an in-form WR #3 Tarek Momen.

What is 9/16? Why did they lose 7 points in the test anyway?
