India's Saurav Ghosal registered a comfortable victory over No. 2 Yasir Butt of Pakistan 11-8, 15-13, 10-12, 11-5 to become the new ‘Windy City Open Squash 2012' champion in Chicago on Sunday.

Yasir took early leads in all the games, but the Indian was up to the task. Saurav's strategy to tire out his opponent worked and also he stopped Butt from playing to his strength — the attacking game.

Saurav won the first and second games with his patient rallies. Yasir won the third game, which was closely fought. Saurav was quick to nail Yasir in the fourth and won the match easily.
