In this situation I usually give myself more geometry to work with. Subdivide your model that you currently have by 1 which will give you more control over the pinched area. I cant really explain it so im just going to post a picture of what i did. :D

Also, slide this edgeloop closer to the hole before you sub'd by 1.

my result:
