SAARBRUCKEN, Germany, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) — China’s shuttler Han Yue ended the run of her compatriot Zhang Yiman to win the BWF World Tour Hylo Open women’s singles title here on Sunday.
22-year-old Han beat 25-year-old Zhang 21-18, 21-16. Zhang had ousted Olympic champion Carolina Marin of Spain in the quarterfinals and third-seeded Nozomi Okuhara of Japan in the last four.
Zhang led the first game from the start before Han leveled the score at 18-18. Han smashed two 6-0 runs in the first game, with the second run leading to a 21-18 win.
Han’s second game was never in doubt as she controlled it and won the title.
