R1: Saurav 3-0 Mahesh

[10] Saurav Ghosal (IND) 3-0 Mahesh Mangaonkar (IND) 11-7, 11-7, 18-16 (56m)

I don’t think I did anything wrong to lose points when I had match ball, or for him to go up game ball. He just played some very good stuff, so all credit to him.

I just had to keep doing what I am capable of and to produce the quality I could. In the end, it was touch and go, and he could have easily won that tie-break. The shot he missed was one of those that he kept hitting earlier in the match.
