Chinese women triumph in the Uber Cup, beating Indonesia 3-0 in the final

China underlined its supremacy by beating Indonesia to win the Uber Cup for the 16th time on Sunday.

China, which lost the final to South Korea in Bangkok two years ago, defeated Indonesia 3-0 to play its first Uber Cup final since 2008.

Olympic champion Chen Yu Fei gave China a perfect start as she defeated Gregoria Mariska Tunjung 21-7, 21-16. Chinese duo Chen Qing Chen and Jia Yi Fan then defeated Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti and Ribka Sugiarto 21-11, 21-8 for a commanding 2-0 lead.

Teenager Ester Nurumi fought hard for Indonesia before He Bing Jiao recovered to win 10-21, 21-15, 21-17.

“Last time it was a shame that we couldn’t win the Uber Cup, so in the past two years we were always ready and played at home,” He said.

The two countries will meet in the Thomas Cup final later on Sunday. It is the first time since 2012 that the same countries will play in both the men’s and women’s finals.
