Weekend Roundup: Low Claims Singapore Open Trophy

Top seed Low Wee Wern put on her A-game on the final day of Singapore Open to comfortably see off the challenge of second seeded Lee Ka Yi of Hong Kong in straight games.

The 28-year-old Penang native was a class above her opponent and took just 27 minutes to win the title.

Low, who won her first Asian Junior title here on Singapore soil in 2006, said after her match: “It’s good to end the year on a high. This is my last tournament for the year so I’m happy to finish off with a win.

“I haven’t played in Singapore for a while, so it’s good to be back. I think in the first game, we were trying to figure each other out, so we were not attacking as much.

“Towards the end of the first game, I got a little more confident and that showed in the second and third. I got out there and took the ball earlier, so that didn’t give her much chance to do anything. I think that was what made the difference today.”

Result – Final: 2018 Singapore Open
