Ramit Tandon has been making waves in the Singapore Open, a PSA World tour event, and the World No. 88 ranked squash player caused the biggest upset of the tournament by beating top seed Henry Leung of Hong Kong for a place in the final.

The sixth-seeded Tandon needed just 22 minutes to score a 11-3,11-6, 11-5 win over Leung defying all odds. His amazing feat had come after he had retired from a Qatar tournament earlier with an twisted ankle.

Tandon had started the event with a comfortable 11-8, 11-6, 11-5 win over qualifier Benedict Chan of Singapore. A long drawn out battle followed against fourth seed Elvinn Keo of Malaysia next. The Indian won 11-7, 11-8, 2-11, 10-12, 12-10 to enter the semis. In the last four, he beat the Leung and now awaits fifth seed James Huang Taipeh for the title-clash.
