This girl is on a roll…
Ratchanok Intanon won the Singapore Open title. Having won India Open and Malaysia Open recently, Singapore Open is her third SuperSeries title of this year.
Read more about her in my earlier post here.

In the final she beat Sun Yu of China by 18 – 21, 21 -11, 21 -14
For me, there was one more star at the Singapore Open. It was none other than 18 years old Japanese girl Akane Yamaguchi. In the quarterfinal match she showed the way out to Carolina Marin in a hard fought tough 3 games. I think Akane Yamaguchi is the player to watch in the coming years. She already has all good qualities that a well-balanced and a mature player can have.
The winners of this SuperSeries are
- Men’s Singles – Sony Dwi Kuncoro
- Women’s Singles – Ratchanok Intanon
- Mixed doubles – Ko S. H. and Kim H. N.
- Men’s doubles – Nan Zhang and Haifeng Fu
- Women’s doubles – Maheswari N. K. and Polii G.
overall I am enjoying Badminton more than Tennis. 🙂
