China has ensured itself one title in the mens singles, but even that had it’s share of drama.
Doubles Delight For China
Lin Dan pulled out of the men’s singles final to allow Chen Jin to claim the title but the questions over the withdrawal be asked all the way until next week’s Indonesia Premier series event. Wang Xin did take to the court in her final against the 6th seeded Tine Baun and defeated the European champion in two tight games to clinch China’s first title of the day, winning 21-19, 21-17.
Two More Titles In Doubles
Cai and Fu proved to be too strong for the unseeded Chandra and Gunawan as the 4th seeded claimed the men’s doubles title, winning 21-17, 21-13. Tian and Zhao ensured China’s fourth title of the week in the women’s doubles, defeating the 6th seeded Ha and Kim in two games, 21-13, 21-16. The mixed doubles title went to the Indonesia pair of Ahmad and Natsir after their victory over Chen and Cheng of Chinese Taipei in two tight games, with the 4th seeds winning 21-14, 27-25.
