Saina Nehwal wins Australian Open 2016

Saina Nehwal overcame a poor start in the first game to defeat Sun Yu of China 11-21, 21-14, 21-19 in a match that lasted over an hour to clinch the Australian Open Badminton title in Sydney.  This was Saina's second Australian Open title, having previously won in 2014.
The Indian ace started off brightly by taking a 4-2 lead in the first game but Sun bounced back in style and won the next seven points on the trot.  She never let go off the advantage as Saina found the going tough. She lost the first game 11-21 in just 18 minutes and it seemed that a chance to win the tournament would slip away. In the deciding game, Saina took a 3-1 lead but Sun did not allow her to extend the lead. She maintained the pressure and came back on level terms. Saina took an 8-5 lead but squandered the opportunity as Sun won five points on the trot to surge into the lead.
