The VITAGEN Singapore Squash Open finished on 19th November with Ali Farag and Nele Gilis taking home the trophies. With Ali Farag defeating Peru’s Diego Elias in a close-fought 72-minute clash, taking the #1 SquashLevels rating from Elias, and Nele Gilis defeating sister Tinne Gilis in a dramatic five-game battle that lasted 82 minutes, causing her to move into the #6 SquashLevel rating position. It’s fair to say there was plenty of movement across players Levels throughout the tournament.
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.
