This was supposed to be the most entertaining fixture of the night and large numbers of local players swarmed the courts in anticipation of a match up that was a repeat of the semi finals at the Indian Nationals earlier this year.
It wasn't meant to be - Harinder who was clearly feeling his back during his laboured five game win yesterday couldn't take the court. A series of Physio sessions over the last 18 hours wasn't enough and he had to pull out without hitting a ball.
MATCH 2: Ivan Yuen (MAS) beat 3-0 Youssef Soliman (EGY) 11-7, 11-4, 11-9 (50 mins) This one promised much but ended up as an anti climax. The gifted Egyptian has been to Mumbai before and familiar with the conditions. His attacking style is attractive but the crowd saw only glimpses of his obvious ability.
Ivan, also an attacking player was consistent and precise and after 7-7 in the first , ensured that he was firmly in the driver's seat. He plays Saurav tomorrow. #IvanYue
MATCH 1: Jaymie Haycocks (ENG) beat 3-0 Christopher Binnie (JAM) 11-6, 11-7, 11-4 (32 mins) The Englishman was solid in his straight game win over Christopher Binnie who started well before the greater consistency from Haycocks kept drawing errors.
The reward for Haycocks was a Main Draw place against Nicolas Mueller. #IndiaSquash #IndianSquash #IndianSquashCircuit #Squash #CCIInternational #JSW #JSWSports #Mumbai #Sports #Fitness #JaymieHaycock #ChristopherBinnie #England
