India's top squash player Saurav Ghosal is aiming to break into the top 20 rankings in the world before the Commonwealth Games next year which he said would brighten his chances of winning a medal in the sporting extravaganza at home.
"The Commonwealth Games is very important for me and I am doing everything I can to break into the top 20 before the event starts," Ghosal told PTI.
"Being top 20 in the world would give me a better draw and that would considerably help my chances of winning a medal for India," he said.
World number 32 Ghosal, however, is aware that the journey to fulfill his dreams would not be easy and he has to perform consistently at the professional circuit.
"I have to continue to do well in the PSA circuit and am working hard both on and off the court to improve my game. I want to win a medal in the Commonwealth Games. It will be a brilliant achievement if I win a medal as the draw is going to be very tough.
"Winning a medal is not going to be easy but I will do everything to win one. It's not out of my reach," Ghosal explained.
Ghosal is unhappy that the Indian players might not get enough practice on the squash courts to be used for the Games as the work is still underway at the venue.
