The reigning national junior champion Kush Kumar made a great attempt to reach the quarter finals in the USD 10,000 Las Vegas open squash tournament being held in Nevada, USA.

The 18-year-old set his rhythm on the track to reach the main draw. He thrashed a Hamzah Bhukari from Pakistan registering 3-2 first and then led 2-0 over New Zealand's Alex Grayson before the latter retired.

An Indian from Dhampur showed his fighting qualities in ousting the eighth seed Alex Ingham of England scoring 11-9, 11-8, 11-7.
