Saina Nehwal completes the hat-trick

Its a hat-trick of wins for Saina Nehwal.  After the Indian Open and the Singaporean Open, the defending champion Saina has won the Indonesian Open again in Jakarta.  True, the top seeded Chinese were not in the draw, but it doesnt take the sheen away from the wins of the World’s 3rd ranking player.

Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal continued her rampaging form as she completed a spectacular hat-trick of titles by clinching the Indonesia Open Super Series with a three-game triumph over Japan’s Sayaka Sato on Sunday.

Unbeaten for the past three weeks, the top seeded defending champion defeated her unseeded but resolute rival 21-19, 13-21, 21-11 in a rollercoaster encounter that lasted 45 minutes.

This was Saina’s third successive title, having won the Indian Open Grand Prix at home and the Singapore Open Super Series Tournament last week. This is also the 20-year-old world number three’s third Super Series title overall.
