After a strong performance this week, upsetting both Peter Gade and then Chen Jin, Boonsak Ponsana was unable to go the distance. Lin Dan was just too strong for him, winning in two straight games 21-17, 21-17. By winning this match Lin Dan insured China all five titles this week, and who better to have done it.
The performance of the tournament likely came from Chinese youngster Wang Shixian who had to upset Wang Chen from Hong Kong, as well as several of her own teammates including Wang Yihan, Lu Lan, and Wang Lin on her way to winning her first ever Super Series title. Be sure to keep an eye out for her in the future.
Here were the final results for the week:
Men’s Singles: Lin Dan def Boonsak Ponsana 21-17, 21-17
Women’s Singles: Wang Shixian def Wang Lin 21-14, 14-21, 21-14
