Saina Nehwal wins Hong Kong Open Super Series

New Delhi: Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal rallied to register a scintilliating three-game victory over Shixian Wang of China to clinch her third Super Series title of the year at the Hong Kong Open in Wanchai today.

The 20-year-old Indian capped her career’s fourth Super Series title triumph with a 15-21 21-16 21-17 win over the third seed Chinese in a gruelling one hour and 11 minutes summit clash at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium.

The girl from Hyderabad won back-to-back titles — Indian Open Grand Prix, Singapore Open Super Series and defended the Indonesian Super Series — before clinching the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games in October here.

Saina, who dropped to fourth in the world rankings, is likely to inch closer to the number one spot with this resounding victory.
