The home crowds were guaranteed at least one title, but Jie Yao doubled their tally on finals day.

Dutch Disappointment

The Malaysian pair of Heg and Teo defeated their second Dutch seed of the week, taking the men’s doubles title over the 3rd seeded De Ruiter and Khodabux in a three game, 52 minute matchup. There was also disappointment for the fans in the men’s singles final, as Anand Pawar withdrew before the start of play that meant Andre Kurniawan Tedjono claimed the title by walkover.

Mateusiak and Zieba claimed the mixed doubles title in their toughest match of the week, but still won in two games over the Russian pairing of Ashmarin and Panushkina with the top seeds winning 21-10, 21-19.

Dutch Delight

Jonathans and Van Dooremalen were taken the distance by their team mates Piek and Tabelling, with the top seeds eventually taking the title on the third attempt in the deciding game. The 65-minute match was the longest of the day with the top seeds winning 17-21, 21-19, 23-21.

Jie Yao ensured another title after ensuring a shock wasn’t on the cards against her Malaysian opponent Sonia Su Ya Cheah. After losing the opening game 21-19, the top seed allowed the unseeded Cheah just 21 points in the next two games to battle back to take the title 19-21, 21-9, 21-12.
