India's top-seeded Saurav Ghosal lost to third seed Omar Abdel Mequid of Egypt in four games in the semifinal to bow out of the $25000 Montreal Open, a PSA event.

The Egyptian won 10-12, 12-10, 11-7, 17-15, according to the information received here.

The match was closely fought for most part and as a disappointed Ghosal was to state later, he saw a chance in the fourth game to revive hopes.

But despite being pushed to extra points, the Egyptian did not lose focus.
