Posted By: Staff

Singapore, June 20 (ANI): Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal clinched the second Super Series title of her career by winning the Singapore Open with a straight-game triumph over qualifier Tzu Ying Tai in the finals in Singapore today.

Television channel reports said Saina took just 33 minutes to beat Chinese Taipei's Tai 21-18 21-15 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The world number six had bagged her maiden Super Series title in June last year when she claimed the top honours at the Indonesian Open.

Last week, Sania won the India Open Grand Prix Gold title.

In a game that was close to start with, Saina was locked 18-18 with her rival at one stage before edging ahead. Saina had seven smash winners to show against her rival's three in the opening game.

In the second game, Saina displayed a better net game and outwitted her rival in rallies to emerge triumphant. (ANI)
