BIRMINGHAM, March 13: Top seed Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei won the women�s singles title of the All England Open Badminton Championships here, while the men�s doubles title went to the Indonesian duo of Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo.

The men�s singles title went to top seed Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia. Chong Wei breezed past Chinese debutant Shi Yuqi 21-12, 21-10 to win his fourth title at the world�s oldest badminton event.

World No.1 Tai on Sunday beat former world champion and fifth seed Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand 21-16, 22-20 in 51 minutes in the final to claim her country�s first trophy in this category at the All England.

�It was an intense match so I am happy to win. I don�t think I made too many mistakes. The scores were always close. During the second game I was trailing a few times but I kept telling myself not to give up,� Tai told Badminton World Federation (BWF) website.

�When Ratchanok attacks she is really good. She is very tricky so I did a lot of work on my defence. I was trying to find opportunities so I could beat her.�

In the men�s doubles final, Gideon and Sukamuljo defeated China�s Li Junhui and Liu Yuchen 21-19, 21-14 in 34 minutes, reports Xinhua news agency.

South Korea�s Chang Ye Na and Lee So Hee won the women�s doubles title as they beat Denmark�s Kamilla Rytter Juhl and Christinna Pedersen 21-18, 21-13 in 47 minutes.
