Zurich: India's top male squash player Saurav Ghosal upstaged World No.7 Tarek Momen for the second successive time this month to enter the quarterfinals at the PSA Grasshopper Cup in Zurich.

There was less drama as compared to their last contest in Egypt earlier in month as 23-ranked Ghosal got past Momen 11-9 4-11 11-4 11-6 in an opening round match held yesterday. He had beaten the Egyptian in five gruelling games at El Gouna.
