JAKARTA - Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal won the third Super Series title in a row by registering a thumping victory in Indonesian Open final on Sunday.
Nehwal put behind a nervous start to rout Japan’s Sayaka Sato 21-19, 13-21, 21-11 at the Indonesian Open final.
She looked rusty against Sato in the second game which Nehwal lost 13-21.
But in the later half, Nehwal came out of rustiness and stamped her authority over Sato in the final game.
Nehwal effectively used smashes and long rallies to come back in the game.
Her world ranking has already soared to a career-high third after last week’s triumph in Singapore. (ANI)
