Mumbai, May 4 (UNI) National squash champion Ritwik Bhattacharya went down fighting to world number 4 James Willstrop of England 11-13, 11-13, 5-11 in a tight first round in the main draw of the Liverpool 08 Squash Open last night.

The Indian, who has moved up to a career best 49 in the latest PSA rankings, had his chances in the first two games in which he ran the Briton close, according to information received here today.

'' It was a tough match. I fought hard and went in there regardless of reputations. It was a great experience,'' said Bhattacharya from Liverpool.

After the Liverpool 08 Open, Bhattacharya will next feature in the Atlanta Open, a one-star competition.
