Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan capped Indonesia’s most successful Super Series tournament of the year on Sunday, winning the men’s doubles title at the French Open Super Series.Indonesia’s Nova Widianto, right, and partner Liliyana Natsir won the French Open Super Series mixed doubles title with a 21-7, 21-7 defeat of Hendra Aprida Gunawan and Vita Marissa.

Facing Denmark Open champions Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong of Malaysia, top-seeded Markis and Hendra rallied from one set down to win 15-21, 21-15, 21-14 at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin in Paris.

The Malaysians muscled their way to winning the first set, hitting nine smash winners to the Indonesians’ one as they sprinted ahead after being level at 11-all. That dominance soon faded, though, as Markis and Hendra led for all but one point in the next two games.

Their victory was the cherry on top of an already successful tournament for Indonesia. Nova Widianto and Liliyana Natsir marked their return to the spotlight on Sunday after an eight-month absence from the podium, beating compatriots Hendra Aprida Gunawan and Vita Marissa 21-7, 21-7 in the mixed doubles final.
