Badminton nations share the spoils

  • Intro:

    Five different nations claimed titles on the final day of BWF Super Series Indonesian Open on Sunday (June 17th).

    Script:

    Two-time Indonesian Open women's singles champion Sania Nehwal of India hoped to add a third career title in Jakarta as she faced China's Li Xuerui on Sunday.

    After dropping the first game, Nehwal saved two match points before winning the second 22-20 to level at 1-1.

    Then after another tough battle in the third game, Sania Nehwal prevailed to win her third BWF Super Series Indonesian Open title 13-21, 22-20, 21-19.

    Local favourite Simon Santoso of Indonesia gave the crowd something to scream about as he won the men's singles title in three games against China's Du Pengyu 21-18, 13-21, 21-11.

    Speaking of favourites, listen to the crowd scream as Korea's Lee Yong-dae took his shirt off courtside during his men's doubles match with Jung Jae-sung.

    Facing Denmark's European champions duo of Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen, the Koreans claim a tough three-game victory 23-21, 19-21, 21-11.

    In women's doubles, China won its only title of the day when Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang beat team-mates Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei 17-21, 21-19, 21-16.

    In perhaps the most entertaining match of the day, Thai mixed doubles pair Sudket and Saralee faced Indonesia's Tantowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir, taking an 11-5 lead in the third game after a scintillating rally.

    That critical point ending any chance of a comeback for the Indonesians - as Thailand's Sudket Prapakamol and Saralee Thoungthongkam disappointed the home crowd by winning the mixed doubles title in three games (21-17, 17-21, 21-13)
    .
    That meant five different nations claimed victories on the final day of the BWF Super Series Indonesian Open.

    The Super Series now moves to Singapore for next week's Singapore Open - before taking time off for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
