India’s Abhay Singh clinched two titles at the Asian Squash Doubles Championship 2024, held at the Arena Emas in Johor, Malaysia, on Sunday. He partnered with Joshna Chinappa to win the mixed doubles title and with Velavan Senthilkumar to secure the men’s doubles crown.

Abhay Singh, who was part of the gold medal-winning team at the Asian Games last year, teamed up with four-time World Doubles Championships medallist Joshna Chinappa. They triumphed over Hong Kong China’s Tong Tsz Wing and Ming Hong Tang with a score of 2-1 (11-8, 10-11, 11-5) to claim the mixed doubles title. The third-seeded pair had earlier defeated Hong Kong China’s Cheng Nga Ching and Lai Cheuk Nam Matthew 2-0 (11-8, 11-10) in the semi-finals.

Last year at the Asian Games, Abhay Singh won the mixed doubles bronze with Anahat Singh, who did not participate in the Malaysia event.

Before the mixed doubles final, Abhay Singh and Velavan Senthilkumar had already secured the men’s doubles title. The top-seeded Indian pair dominated Malaysia’s Ong Sai Hung and Syafiq Kamal in the final, winning comfortably 2-0 (11-4, 11-5). All their victories in the tournament were achieved in straight games.

Earlier this year, Abhay Singh had won the Goodfellow Classic and the Willingdon Masters squash titles.

In the women’s doubles event, India’s Rathika Suthanthira Seelan and Pooja Arthi Raghu were seeded fifth in the entry list but did not compete.
