BADMINTON- Japan’s Kento Momota defeated Indonesia’s Anthony Sinisuka Ginting 10-21 21-19 21-13 to win the Singapore Open final on Sunday.
“I felt my opponent played better than me today but I was able to capitalise when he got tired,” Momota said after the win.
“He tried to push a little too hard in the second game but I kept telling myself to stay patient and never give up.”
In the women’s singles final, Tai Tzu-ying claimed her second Singapore Open title with a 21-19 21-15 victory over Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara.
“Okuhara is a good opponent, she’s very durable, so I was prepared for a long match,” Tai said. “I am playing well right now but it’s important to stay injury-free with the Tokyo Olympics coming up next year.”
