Top seed Abhay Singh, ranked 66th in the world, won the 13th final of his career 11-7, 11-9, 11-9 in 40 minutes to claim his second Challenger title of the year after winning at JSW Willingdon in Mumbai last year. On his way to the title, Abhay defeated France's Maceo Levy 13-11, 11-7, 11-3 in 33 minutes in the quarter-finals and then defeated Egypt's Abdelrahman Abdelkhalek 11-5, 6-11, 11-11 in the semi-finals.

In the final game, Abhay Singh performed brilliantly from the beginning and did not even give Elliott a chance to dominate him and won the title one-sidedly by winning the game.

Abhay Singh had also shown excellent performance in the quarter-finals and semi-finals of this tournament, due to which he has now won the title by winning the five-match round. The 25-year-old Indian Squash Academy player, who won team gold and mixed doubles bronze at the Hangzhou Asian Games last year, is scheduled to play his next match at the Canadian Men's Open in the first week of March.

The Goodfellow Classic, a PSA Challenger Tour squash event, only featured a men's singles competition. Abhay Singh, the world No. 66, was the top seed at the meet. This was Abhay's second PSA Challenger win of the season, having won the men's singles event at the Willingdon Little Masters and Senior Tournament in Mumbai last month.
