[R1] Saurav Ghosal (IND,21) l (Q) Declan James (ENG,35) 9-11, 6-11,9-11 (49m)
I expected a better result from Saurav with his recent form but he lost in the straight games against British qualifier ... Harry qualified for the main draw with back to back upset wins over higher ranked Egyptian players and in the main draw he took WR #9 Paul Coll to four games.
