The Indian Challenge in the Mens draw though came to an end with Saurav Ghosal loosing to Palmer in the first round….. Australian David Palmer overcame a slow start to down India’s Saurav Ghosal in four games in the first round of the Australian Open squash tournament in Canberra on Tuesday.

Ghosal came out of the blocks firing to open a 9-2 lead in the first game and although Palmer recovered he couldn’t save the first game, the Indian number one taking it 12-10.

But the 34-year-old Palmer soon hit his stride as he came back to win the next three games and the match 10-12, 11-6, 11-5, 11-9 to move into a second round clash with arch-rival James Willstrop of England.

“I felt okay physically throughout the match but I struggled to get any rhythm,” Palmer said.

“A slow start wasn’t ideal and he got away and got on a bit of a roll and he was tough to pull back.

“Eventually my game started to take a little bit of effect on him midway through the second, but it still wasn’t easy.

“I thought at stages he was tired and would drop off a bit but he kept pushing and surprised me a little bit.”
