CHINA’s Li Xuerui made a successful return from injury to win her first Maybank Malaysian Open title at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.
The world No. 1 proved too strong for compatriot Wang Shixian, winning 21-16, 21-17 in the women’s singles final on Sunday.
And Xuerui thanked her lucky stars after pulling off the victory.
“I am delighted to win this title for the first time here in Malaysia. After suffering from injury at the end of last year, I was doubtful about my performance. But luck was on my side today,” said Xuerui.
