Saurav Ghosal became the first Indian player to claim a place in the world’s top 20 in February 2013 and has continued to be his country’s leading squash player.
Ghosal, from Kolkata, won his first PSA World Tour title at the Otters Open in August 2006.
He also became the first Indian ever to reach the quarter-finals at the World Championship in 2013, narrowly losing out to Ramy Ashour.
Ghosal is coached by Malcolm Willstrop, father of former World No.1 James Willstrop and his career has come on leaps and bounds since Willstrop senior took over the coaching reins. He claimed his 10th Indian Nationals title after downing Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu in 2015's final.
He fared well for the majority of that year with a number of strong finishes at PSA World Tour events such as a semi-final place at the Oregon Open in February and a runner-up finish in May's HKFC International 25 where he lost out to Max Lee.
After a succession of runner-up finishes at the back end of 2015, Ghosal finally got his hands on some silverware at the Kolkata International, defeating Marwan Elshorbagy on home soil to lift his first PSA World Tour title in three years.
The Indian lifted the Kolkata International title in September 2015 when he beat former World No.1 Marwan ElShorbagy in the final.
Ghosal also won the Indian Nationals in July 2016 beating Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu in a gruelling five-game contest. The Indian had also won the competition in 2015, where he beat Sandhu as well.
