The World No 21, seeded third, had things very much his way as he drubbed his fifth-seeded Swiss opponent 11-6 11-8 11-8 in a one-sided final at the Cricket Club of India.

The 31-year-old Kolkata-born national champion cruised to the seventh professional title of his career.

Ghosal said later the title was a special one for him.

"I'm happy to win in India. It's my biggest PSA win as well in a $50, 000 tournament. In September, I made the final in Macau, but lost. I have taken a lot of care of my body this week and I am happy it's worth it", said the India no one.

"I played some great matches and I played good squash in majority of the tournament. That's the important thing for me now," he added.

He also wished there were more such tournaments in the country to help up and coming players.

"Hopefully, we can make it bigger and have more tournaments all over India. This will help not just me, but those who are playing the PSA and the juniors who can watch us more regularly, not just once a year," he added.

Results: 3-Saurav Ghosal (IND) beat 5-Nicolas Mueller (SUI) 11- 6, 11-8, 11-8.
