India’s Mahesh Mangaonkar had his hopes of cruising past sixth seed Alan Clyne of Scotland dashed when he got injured midway through the first round contest and exited from the CCI International JSW Indian Squash Circuit tournament today.
Mahesh – ranked 65 – trailed his rival, ranked 35th on the professional squash circuit, by two games and was down 3-5 in the third when he retired hurt after 20 minutes on court at the Cricket Club of India (CCI) here.
Mahesh had come through the qualifying rounds.
Top seed Fares Dessouky of Egypt, ranked 18th in the world, led the other seeds into round two with a clinically efficient 3-0 victory in 37 minutes over Olli Tuominen of Finland.
Later, India’s multiple-time national champion Saurav Ghosal recovered from the loss of the first game to put it across Malaysian qualifier Ivan Yuen 3-1.
