Ghosal reaches quarters in Montreal squash

Oct 4 2013, 6:36am CDT | by IANS

Montreal, Oct 4 (IANS) India's Saurav Ghosal, who recorded a career-high ranking of 17 in October, has reached the quarter-finals of the Financière Banque Nationale Montreal Open, a PSA World Tour International 35 squash event here.

Montreal, Oct 4 — India's Saurav Ghosal, who recorded a career-high ranking of 17 in October, has reached the quarter-finals of the Financière Banque Nationale Montreal Open, a PSA World Tour International 35 squash event here.

Playing on an all-glass court at the Montreal Forum Thursday, third seed Ghosal faced Australian qualifier Steven Finitsis. After dropping the opening game, Ghosal - India's highest-ranked player of all-time - recovered to beat the 30-year-old Queenslander, ranked 41 places lower, 7-11, 11-9, 11-2, 11-5 in 57 minutes.

"Won my match 3-1 today after losing the 1st game," tweeted the 27-year-old from Kolkata later. "Finitsis played a good match & am happy to win that one."

Chris Simpson, the Guernsey-born 26-year-old who leapt four places to 21 to become England's fifth highest-ranked player for the first time, beat France's Gregoire Marche 11-7, 11-7, 12-10.

Simpson goes on to face fellow countryman Adrian Waller in the quarter-finals, while Ghosal meets Egyptian Omar Abdel Aziz.

Waller despatched one of three Canadians trying to get into the last eight, beating Toronto-based qualifier Dane Sharp 11-3, 11-5, 11-9.

Aziz, the world No.45 from Cairo, also beat a qualifier, England's Jaymie Haycocks 11-8, 12-10, 11-6.

While top seed Borja Golan, the world No.9 from Spain, overcame his first round opponent Henrik Mustonen, from Finland, in straight games 11-4, 11-4, 11-5, second-seeded Englishman Daryl Selby was taken to four games by Canadian wildcard Andrew Schnell.

The world No.98 from Calgary kept Selby on court for almost an hour before the world No.14 prevailed 11-7, 13-11, 9-11, 11-3.

Quarter-final line-up:

(2) Daryl Selby (ENG) v Mathieu Castagnet (FRA)

(4) Chris Simpson (ENG) v Adrian Waller (ENG)

(3) Saurav Ghosal (IND) v Omar Abdel Aziz (EGY)

(1) Borja Golan (ESP) v Alan Clyne (SCO)

Who picked Rory MacDonald's walkout music? For a time, not Rory MacDonald

Sep 1 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: MMA Fighting

Walkout music comes before the fighter. You often hear it before you see then either on the broadcast or in person at a live event. It sets the tone, sometimes sends a message and, on rare occasions, define who a fighter is in ways nothing else can (e.g. B.J. Penn). Of course, that all presumes the fighter is the one picking their entrance music. In the case of UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald, that hasn't been his experience, at least not until relatively recently. The stor ...

MONTREAL – It’s been a tale of two half-seasons for Marco Di Vaio. What had been a disappointing 2014 for Di Vaio started with a three-game suspension picked up in Houston in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
