Australian Open badminton: Shi Yuqi and An Seyoung win singles titles in Sydney

Shi Yuqi showed flashes of his best at winning a men’s singles title at Australian Open in Sydney on Sunday (November 20).

The former world silver medalist from the People’s Republic of China raced against his compatriot Lu Guangzu for most of the opening game, but found some great angles to score five in a row to win 21-19.

Lu won the second game 21-18, but Shi was spectacular in the deciding match as he ran to an 11-3 lead.

And the 26-year-old finished a 21-19, 18-21, 21-5 win in an hour and nine minutes to secure his second title in a month – after winning the Denmark Open in October – after recently returning from a 10-month ban after leaving against Momota Kento in the Thomas Cup when match point is down.

Wins third title in 2022

Republic of Korea Seyoung won her third World Tour title of the year in Sydney.

The world number two defeated the Indonesian Gregoria Mariska Tunjung 21-17. 21-9 in just 36 minutes to get through the tournament without losing a game.

Tunjung took an 11-9 lead at the first break and scored the first point after the break to lead by three points.

But An soon showed her power from the back of the court with her second chance to score.

The second match got off to a tight start, but An scored five straight 5-5s before recovering from a mid-game stoppage to secure the 11th BWF Tour title of her career.
