TTI Milwaukee Hong Kong Squash Open 2023: SquashLevels Analysis

5th December 2023

The TTI Milwaukee Hong Kong Squash Open 2023 finished on 3rd December with Paul Coll and Hania El Hammamy taking home the trophies. 

Coll, taking his second Platinum title of the season, became the first male New Zealander to be victorious in Hong Kong after defeating Ali Farag in an epic five-game battle. 

Sadly, in the women’s final, El Hammamy retained her crown after Amanda Sobhy was forced to retire. She said “I’ve never defended a title before and I’ve always wanted to do that, but I never got the chance. This is definitely not the way I wanted it to be, defending my title.”

SquashLevels has taken the data from the tournament and analysed the most improved players across the tournament, as well as the games which had the biggest impact on those movements. Here’s what we found.
